Good Morning Central Coast!

Temperatures are mild to kick off your Thursday morning, additionally there is no major areas of fog, good news for the morning commute.

Not a lot of exciting news in the current weather pattern, we'll warm a little more today into the upper 60s.

This mild, albeit windy, weather isn't goint to stick around for too much longer. Friday a cold front that has been pushing through the Pacific NW and into NorCal will stall out just north of our region, That will bring cloud cover and a slight cooldown as well as a very small chance for some light rain in the early afternoon.

The storms will be quick moving and weak but have the potential to bring a little rain Friday afternoon. I would be very surprised if it is anything substantial across the region.

Friday night the front will have passed through and high pressure will once again form. We will once again see warming, mainly inland, but continuing onshore flow and marine layer stratus will temper any warming at the coast. Additional warming Sunday will push warmer temps into the mid to upper 70s but some places like beaches will likely sit in the 60s.

A low-impact weather pattern continues into next week.

Monday and Tuesday will feature more 70s for the warmer areas but some coastal valleys will back off into the low to mid-60s by mid-week. Beaches will also likely stay in the 60s with more marine layer formation looking likely.

Generally quiet weather continues until we get into the mid-month timeframe where models are beginning to speculate several more rain systems are possible. The models have been consistent in spinning up more activity but inconsistent in the "when" and "where" and "how much" categories. At this point, the mid-month timeframe just bears some watching.

Have a great day Central Coast!
