Weather models are showing low clouds are filling in over the coastal valleys and beaches Wednesday morning. Gradual clearing will happen after the morning commute for the coastal valleys, while some beaches could take some time to clear, and cloudy and foggy conditions could linger through early afternoon.

Daytime highs will be trending down Wednesday, but the impacts will mostly be felt in the interior valleys. Inland communities will experience about 10 degrees of cooling, which will bring most daytime highs back to the mid-90s. The coastal valleys will also experience a slight cool down over the next couple of days with temperatures peaking around the mid to upper 70s. Due to the gradual clearing at the beaches, temperatures will continue to be on the cooler side and will range from the low to upper 60s.

Northwesterly winds will generally stay between 10 and 15 miles per hour, but wind gusts could increase to 20 to 25 mph from early afternoon to early Wednesday night. Winds will increase for the south coast region as sundowner winds are expected Thursday and Friday. During that time, north to northwesterly winds will range from 20-30 mph with gusts up to 45 mph.
