Daytime highs are trending up for the weekend

After a cooler and rainy week, the Central Coast will start to warm up Friday.

An upper low pressure system that has been the responsible party for the cooler conditions, will discontinue influence on the Central Coast and be replaced by high pressure. While the Central Coast will be mostly clear and free of any precipitation Friday morning, there is still a 20% chance for rain showers for areas of the deep interior valley, like Cuyama, and the Santa Ynez Valley.

Moderate northeasterly winds, ranging from 15-25 miles per hour will keep the coastal regions mostly clear throughout the morning and well into the afternoon.

Daytime highs are starting to trend up, which means temperatures will be close to the low 70s for the coastal valleys and the mid to upper 60s for the beaches and inland valley communities.

The weekend will continue to have overnight clouds and morning fog ahead of afternoon clearing. Sunday will likely be the cloudiest day out of the weekend, but the start of next week shows temperatures in the 70s and partly cloudy skies.
