Hello, Central Coast! Happy Sunday. We've had some cooler conditions stick with us over the course of the Labor Day weekend, but luckily some areas throughout the Central Coast will see some sunshine in the forecast for the upcoming work week.

Along the Central Coast, we experienced partly to mostly cloudy skies. Luckily, there should be some clearing taking place before the end of the day, especially for areas closer to the coast and valleys.

Our models indicate that low clouds and fog will stay along most coastal areas and valleys throughout the night and morning hours Monday through Wednesday. We are expecting to see those clouds clear off for the holiday tomorrow.

The reason behind the cooler conditions we're experiencing along the Central Coast is due to an upper-level trough that is expected to move over the region and will head east tonight through Monday.

If you have any plans to hang out along the Central Coast beaches for the holiday tomorrow, expect to see cooler temps ranging throughout the 60s and 70s from San Simeon through Guadalupe. The inland areas will be slightly warmer than the coast with temps in the 80s in cities like San Miguel, Templeton, Atascadero, Shandon, and California Valley.

For those who are planning to travel outside of the Central Coast for Labor Day, you can expect temps to be much warmer in the desert and valleys areas on Monday.

Palm Springs is expected to see a high of 96 degrees, while Sacramento, Fresno, and Bakersfield will range from the low to mid-80s.

While the 3-day Labor Day weekend is slowly coming to an end, our models have indicated that we are expecting to see a slight warm-up next weekend. Temps in the forecast will gradually warm up over the next few days, while highs will remain several degrees below normal.
