Low pressure is keeping the Central Coast cool and dry Wednesday.

Morning temperatures for many of the inland valleys could stay close to the upper 30s through the morning commute, while the coastal valleys will be a few degrees warmer and right around the 40s.

Patchy and dense morning fog is expected across some of the interior valleys Wednesday morning, particularly for San Luis Obispo County. By the afternoon, mostly sunny skies will take over and temperatures will be slightly warmer for some cities. Most of San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara Counties interior will stay in the 50s, but areas along the south coast region of Santa Barbara County will likely warm up to the mid-60s. Coastal communities in San Luis Obispo County are expected to be cooler with daytime highs struggling to get out of the upper 50s range.

Southerly winds will be closer to 10 miles per hour for much of the Central Coast, but for areas from northern Santa Barbara County down to the south coast region, wind gusts were already between 15 and 32 miles per hour Wednesday morning.

The next chance for showers will be Thursday-Saturday with increased rainfall chances back in the forecast Sunday and Monday.
