A push from onshore flow is moving coastal morning fog from the beaches to the inland valleys Tuesday, making for a cloudy commute for most of the Central Coast. By late morning, most of the valleys should clear, but some local beaches could see foggy skies throughout most of the day.

Southerly winds will be mild to start out, but wind gusts are expected to increase across valley locations by the afternoon with wind gusts up to 25 miles per hour.

In some cases, temperatures will be well below average. For the deep interiors valleys, like Cuyama, temperatures could reach the low 90s Tuesday. However, cities like Paso Robles could stay closer to the 70s, which is nearly 20 degrees cooler than what inland valley locations usually reach this time of year. For those along the coast, expect daytime highs from the low to upper 60s, and a mix of 60s and 70s across coastal valleys.

The weekend ahead will be slightly warmer, but the morning fog along the coast will persist.
