Mild weather conditions are expected on Wednesday as wind speeds taper off and the surf gradually subsides along the coast.

The morning commute will be cold across the inland valleys as temperatures stay in the 30s through at least 8 a.m. Towards the coast, morning temperatures will start out in the 40s and gradually increase through late morning. Skies will be mostly clear Wednesday and daytime temperatures will be seasonal. Expect coastal conditions to be from the low 60s and for inland valleys to range from mid-50s to low 60s.

Mild to moderate northeasterly winds will be in the forecast, ranging from 10-25 miles per hour and shifting out of the northwest by the afternoon.

The high surf advisory in effect for San Luis Obispo and northern Santa Barbara Counties will through 6 p.m. Wednesday. Breaking waves will range from eight to 12 feet and gradually subside throughout the afternoon and evening.

Looking ahead to Thursday, a ridge will move in over the state and bring about four to eight degrees of warming to the central coast. This means the south coast region and most coastal valleys will experience temperatures close to the 70s.
