After a scorching hot weekend for some of the inland valleys across the Central Coast, locals will be getting some much-needed relief from the heat. The ridge of high pressure that is associated with the dry and hot weather conditions will start to flatten Monday and continue to do so through mid-week. This will allow inland valleys to cool down to the 80s and 90s through Friday, and even bring some morning fog to the region.

The coastal valleys will range from the low to upper 70s Monday while temperatures to the close coast will be about 10 degrees cooler and closer to the low to upper 60s.

Patchy morning fog will have a chance to redevelop Monday morning for the coastal valleys and beaches. By the afternoon, most coastal valley areas will be clear, but the fog could linger along the coast through the afternoon. This trend will remain in the forecast through the end of the week.

The wind forecast shows mild to moderate wind speeds start to pick-up by the afternoon as winds gusts could reach 20-30 miles per hour through late Monday night.
