Just as we enter a new season, the Central Coast will be experiencing warmer temperatures that will be even more significant by the middle of next week.

Coastal clouds and fog are a factor Wednesday morning, but offshore flow is assisting in clearing that could happen by the time middle of the morning commute.

Wednesday will also bring slightly warmer daytime highs to the area. Most coastal towns will stay close to the upper 60s but it's possible a few beaches could break 70 degrees by the afternoon. For the coastal valleys, there will continue to be a mix of 70s and 80s, and the inland valleys will range from the upper 80s to mid-90s.

There's a cold front that will sweep over Northern California Wednesday night through Thursday morning that could bring some impacts to the Central Coast in the form of gusty winds. While some areas along the coast and over coastal valleys could reach 20-25 mph winds Wednesday, there could be even more wind activity across the Central Coast Thursday as the cold front passes over the northern half of the state.

Looking ahead to next week, a ridge of high pressure could bring some fairly warm temperatures to Southern California and the Central Coast.
