After a hot couple of days, temperatures across the Central Coast are starting to trend down Friday. With the exception of some of the inland valley areas, most daytime highs throughout the area should feel a few degrees cooler. The beaches will range from the mid-60s to the low 80s, while the coastal valleys mostly stay in the 80s. Most of the inland valley communities, especially in San Luis Obispo County, will stay close to the low 90s Friday.

As the low pressure continues to move over the area, the weekend forecast will have cooler temperatures and increasing cloud cover throughout the morning hours. Some of the marine layer could linger through the afternoon hours for the beaches, which means May Gray is making an appearance.

The winds will calm down Friday, shifting out of the northwest and ranging from 10-20 miles per hour. These wind conditions will carry over through the end of the weekend before winds are expected to ramp up by the start of next week.
