Good Morning Central Coast! We made it to Friday, here is a look at the forecast for today and the weekend ahead!
To kick off the day there is more marine influence along the coasts and into the coastal valleys, this will limit visibility on roadways and in regions prone to fog.

Once the sun rises that marine fog will struggle to hold on but when it clears it will still leave cooler and more humid conditions at the coast. Temperatures will rise quickly as locations inland see some more sunshine and light offshore winds. Upper 90s are possible in the interior valleys for today. Where the marine air persists along the western beaches many locations will struggle to reach into the 50s.
Friday evening will be mild and comfortable in the coastal valleys and bring cooler air into the interior valleys. Conditions will be great for any outdoor events, including the first of the Concerts in the Plaza series of the year.
The same marine influence will stick around in the mornings through the weekend, keeping conditions mild at the coasts. Inland temperatures will climb into the tripe digits by the weekend. Highs are expected to peak on Monday and stay hot (triple digits) for the remainder of the forecast!
There is a little bit of hope in the forecast though. By the middle of next week the high pressure that is driving the extreme heat in the forecast will wander east slightly and allow more marine influence into the interior valleys, cooling them down drastically. Highs by Thursday of next week will only reach to the low 90s in the interior valleys, about 15 degrees cooler than the highs on Tuesday.
Have a great Friday Central Coast! Be sure to stay hydrated in the interior valleys .
