Mostly clear skies are in the forecast for the Tuesday morning commute, although temperatures in the inland valleys will be chilly, some near freezing, and around the 30s through 9:00 a.m.

Seasonal temperatures seem to be thrown out of the forecast Tuesday and replaced with above average daytime highs, which is expected to last through Thursday. Daytime highs Tuesday should be the warmest of the week as the inland and coastal valleys climb back into the low to mid-70s range and the beaches stay close to the upper 60s.

Early morning northeasterly winds will be around 10-15 miles per hour Tuesday with potential to reach 20 mph by the afternoon hours.

A ridge of high pressure will be over the area Wednesday, but as onshore flow redevelops temperatures will start to cool and clouds will be more likely to fill in over the area. Near-seasonal daytime highs will continue through the end of the week and the Central Coast will still likely receive some rain late Saturday through Sunday.
