A foggy start to the week for the Central Coast will turn into a hot end to the week.

Onshore flow is keeping the beaches foggy Monday morning, which will be followed by gradual clearing. Wind speeds are going to be fairly mild towards the coast Monday, which could keep the beaches foggy for most of the early afternoon. Southwestern winds for the beaches and coastal valleys are expected to only reach 10 miles per hour. It will be a different story for the interior valleys, however, as wind speeds are expected to peak at 30 mph through 8:00 p.m. Monday.

Temperature-wise, conditions will be fairly average for the Central Coast. Expect daytime highs in the 60s for the beaches, and in the 70s and 80s for the coastal valley communities. As for the inland valleys, temperatures will generally be from the low to upper 90s.

The mild weather will continue through Wednesday before high pressure takes over the forecast. The trajectory of high pressure shows it will land over the four corner states by the weekend, which will have some impacts on the Central Coast. Daytime highs are expected to jump at least 10 degrees for Labor Day Weekend, bringing some daytime highs in the inland valleys up to 111 degrees. The coastal valleys will range from the
mid-80s to the upper 90s, with favorable conditions towards the coast from the 70s and 80s.
