Good Morning Central Coast!
As we get going on our Tuesday there is a bit more cooling and marine layer rolling in. This is bringing some patchy dense fog to the Santa Ynez valley all the way to the Lompoc area. Low visibilities are possible in this area. Take extra caution on the roads.

As far as temperatures go, today will be 6-12 degrees cooler than Monday with continued mostly clear skies. Interior valleys could still climb into the 80s but most locations will be in the upper 60s and lower 70s.

The next few days will all feature a few degrees of cooling. The marine layer will push in more cloudy and foggy morning conditions through Thursday Morning.
Thursday is our next day with changes in the forecast. A slight ripple in the jet stream will bring gustier and cloudier conditions into the region. I wouldn't be surprised if high wind advisories were issued Thursday for the high winds we will experience. Thursday will be both the coolest and windiest day of the forecast.

Friday morning a system will push through Northern California and the Pacific Northwest, that will not bring us any rain but it will shift our winds back offshore. That will clear us up significantly and begin to warm temperatures through the weekend.
Have a great day Central Coast!
