A weak cold front brings a slight chance of drizzle through about 9 a.m. Wednesday. This is not measurable rain and will most likely fall apart off the coast.

The remainder of the day and week looks to be dry.

A building ridge of high pressure will boost daytime highs into the 60s across the Central Coast.

A high surf advisory remains in place at the coast through 6 p.m. Wednesday. Waves will break at 8-10 ft. on west and northwest facing beaches with max sets of 15 ft. possible.

Skies will still be partly to mostly cloudy Wednesday through the weekend. Stronger offshore winds 10-20 mph with gusts 30+ possible will help bring some afternoon clearing of the clouds.

Daytime highs increase to high 60s, even low 70s Thursday through Saturday.

The marine layer and onshore flow begins to return Saturday with a cold front on the way Sunday. Possibility for a tenth to a half inch of rain Sunday but we'll keep refining this precipitation chance as the weekend approaches.
