Friday is proving to be a windy end to the week as wind speeds range from 15-40 miles per hour. Just east of San Luis Obispo at Mt. Low, winds clocked in at 40 mph around 4:30 a.m. Despite the windy start, clouds continue to blanket the Central Coast and will linger through the afternoon hours.
By Friday afternoon, winds are expected to have a northwesterly shift and temperatures will warm up to the 70s for most valley locations. At the coast, while temperatures will be warmer, expect daytime highs to range from the mid-60s to low 70s.
Skies will continue to clear Saturday and Sunday and warmer daytime highs in the 70s will stay put through the end of the weekend. By the start of next week, a trough will approach the state and bring temperatures down into the 60s for most of the Central Coast. As for Thanksgiving Day, conditions are expected to be dry, and daytime highs will likely range from the low to upper 60s.
