Marine layer is filling in over the Central Coast Tuesday morning. These foggy conditions are also reaching the inland valleys Tuesday morning in cities like Paso Robles. Much of the fog will stay in areas north of Point Conception, but towards the south coast, it should be mostly clear through the morning commute.

Offshore will be back in the forecast Tuesday, which means daytime highs will be slightly warmer. Temperatures along the coast will be right around the upper 60s to the low 70s and the coastal valleys will stay close to the upper 70s and low 80s. The warming will continue for the inland valleys Tuesday as daytime highs will inch towards the mid-80s. Weather models are indicating that breezy conditions will start to increase right around noon, with sustaining winds close to 20 miles per hour in the Santa Ynez Valley and the south coast region.

A trough of low pressure will move back in over the state on Wednesday, which will result in partly cloudy skies and cooler temperatures, which will stick around through Thursday.
