A low pressure system continues to spin off the coast of California, which has allowed clouds and fog to develops along the coast and in some of the coastal valleys.
It's possible that most of the clouds could linger to some capacity along the coast and be patchy over parts of our coastal valley communities through the afternoon.

Temperature-wise, daytime highs will be slightly warmer. The beaches will mostly be in the 70s, while the coastal valleys will range from the mid to upper 70s. It's the inland valley communities that will have the warmest temperatures, which will climb to the 90s. In some cases, interior communities like San Miguel could reach the upper 90s. The warming trend will carry over into Wednesday and could bring inland valleys to triple-digits while the rest of the Central Coast will likely experience daytime highs 10-15 degrees above average.

Winds will be mild to moderate Tuesday, shifting out of the northwest by the afternoon with wind gusts from 15-25 miles per hour.

Looking ahead to the end of the week, after a short-lived heatwave for the inland valleys, temperatures will quickly cool down as the upper low off the coast moves east. By Friday, some temperatures could decrease by 10-20 degrees.
