The inland valleys of the Central Coast will experience some foggy and cloudy skies throughout the morning commute. The fog cover will stretch from the inland valleys of San Luis Obispo County down to the mountains and foothills above the south coast in Santa Barbara County before conditions start to clear by late morning.

Breezy northeasterly winds will be a factor in the forecast throughout the morning, but will shift out of the northwest by the afternoon and generally range from 15-25 miles per hour, with wind gusts up to 30 mph through the evening.

Daytime highs will be a few degrees cooler and right around the upper 60s to the mid-70s for most of the coastal valleys and inland valleys. The coastal regions, will be closer to the mid to upper 60s range, but there's a possibility that some of the beach cities could surpass 70 degrees for a daytime high. The clear skies, favorable temperatures and breezy conditions will linger in the forecast through the end of the week.

By Saturday, there will be a decrease in temperatures and an increase in cloud cover. As an upper low moves down from Alaska, the Central Coast could see light rain showers Saturday night through Monday night.
