A weak trough moving over the state is causing daytime highs to cool down Thursday, especially along the coast.
Marine layer and fog will cover the beaches and coastal valleys throughout the morning. While there’s room for more clearing this afternoon over the coastal valleys, the beaches will likely stay socked in through the afternoon hours with limited clearing.
Daytime highs at the coast will be around the mid-60s and the coastal valleys will be around the low to mid-70s. Warmer temperatures are still in the forecast for the interior valleys, but they’ll be close to the upper 80s.
Breezy conditions are expected in Shandon this afternoon, which is where the McMillan Fire is burning. Temperatures will be close to the upper 80s with sustaining west to southwest winds from five to 15 miles per hour with wind gusts from 20-25 mph Thursday afternoon through the evening.
