Good morning, Central Coast and happy Monday!
As we kick off the week there is some low lying fog and cloud cover to contend with across the region. While it is significantly less "put together" than what we saw late last week the patchy fog will still bring a cool and cloudy start to the workweek.
With the morning marine influence in play temps are going to stay much cooler than normal for this time of year. That is the most significant in the interior valleys but even at our beaches it is more like Mid-October than mid-September.
Paso Robles "normal" high temp for this time of the year is 90 degrees. For some reference, Sunday Paso Robles made it to 77, that is 13 degrees cooler than our normal for this time of year.
The upper level low pressure sitting well offshore from us will begin to move closer to us over the next few days. This will not bring us any "bad" weather but it will bring more cloud cover and cooler weather this week. Temps falling day by day to Thursday, our expected coolest and cloudiest day of the week.
The good news is that a warm up is lingering, by Friday temps will once again heat up and bring much more sunshine and temps just a few degrees below normal.
Those close to normal temps will stick around well into next week. Even the 8-14 day forecast keeps us near and just below normal through early October.
Have a great day, Central Coast!
