Good morning Central Coast!

More of the same morning marine influence is in play this morning with a few areas of dense fog.

Inland heat will peak today but backs off over the weekend, this is mainly due to some offshore winds pulling hot air into the interior valleys but being unable to overcome cool air at the surface.

Highs today will be in the 60s in most beach communities, 70s inland with triple digits in the interiors. If you are headed to the mid state fair, be sure to drink plenty of water triple digits are expected.

At the beaches and near coastal valleys we'll see continued marine influence, clouds for the night and morning hours with clearing but also afternoon onshore breezes. This will continue to keep temps outside of the interior controlled.

Into the extended forecast nearly every community on the Central Coast will stay within a few degrees of normal for this time of year. Thankfully this sets us apart from the rest of the country where the extended forecast will bring more extreme heat.

Have a good day Central Coast!
