As we approach Thursday, daytime highs will continue to gradually trend down across the Central Coast. As of Wednesday, the trough is just off the west coast, but will continue to move over the region through the end of the week,

Inland valley communities will stay between the low 80s and 90s, but for areas like Paso Robles where temperatures are only expected to reach the low 80s, that means temperatures will be close to 10 degrees below normal. Coastal valley locations, like San Luis Obispo and Santa Maria, will cool down to the 70s. Along the coast, most beaches will likely cool down to the 60s, but some beaches, like Avila Beach, could still reach the low 70s.

As for wind conditions, northwesterly winds will still range from 20-30 miles per hour at their peak. Pismo Beach could experience wind gusts up to 30 mph through Wednesday night and some of the interior locations like Paso Robles could have similar conditions.

As for the weekend, the trough of low pressure will continue to have some impacts on the Central Coast. Coastal regions will continue to experience morning low clouds and fog and mostly clear afternoons through the start of next week.
