Good Morning Central Coast!

Today we have a big change in store as we transition from the extreme heat felt over the past few days to a much cooler and windier pattern. That transition will start first with a lot of fog surging onshore.

There will be some low visibility on the roads this morning.

The main thing to remember about today on the Central Coast is that we are in a transition from the extreme heat that brought upper 90s over the past few days to cooler and much winder conditions tomorrow. Average those out and you get todays forecast.

The ridge of high pressure and low pressure offshore pushing winds into the region. A cold front is putting an end to our offshore winds and the compressional heating that kept us downright hot for the season. The marine layer also returned with the windy afternoon conditions. Significantly cooler weather is moving into the region.

Highs Friday will still crawl their way up to the 80s in the interior valleys, low 70s in the coastal valleys and 60s at the beach.

Much cooler and gustier conditions surge in to start the weekend. Many spots will struggle to reach into the 60s Saturday and Sunday.

The weekend winds will see peak potential near 30mph in the afternoon hours.

Early next week the huge trough lifts out and a ridge edges in, this change in pressure will keep winds up. Temps warm but not to anything near what we experienced this week.

Have a great day Central Coast!
