The morning low clouds and fog are back for much of the coastal valley and beach communities Monday morning. In some areas, such as Vandenberg, there were even reports of drizzle right around 3:30 a.m. The fog will linger through mid-morning, but the skies will start to clear heading into the afternoon hours.

Daytime highs for the inland valley communities will be right around the low 80s, while the coastal valleys will mainly stay between the mid-70s and upper 70s. Out along the coast, temperatures will be slightly cooler and mostly in the 60s, but coastal cities like Morro Bay have the potential to break 70 degrees Monday afternoon.

The wind forecast looks fairly mild with sustaining winds generally below 10 miles per hour through the afternoon. A ridge will move in over the state Tuesday as offshore flow develops, which means there will be about three to six degrees of warming across the Central Coast and South Coast regions. Cooler temperatures will take over Wednesday as a trough moves in over the state. Locals can expect the cooler conditions to stick around through the end of the week.
