The high pressure that brought the warmer daytime highs Tuesday is shifting to the east, resulting in a cooler day for the Central Coast. Daytime highs will be trending down by about five to ten degrees for the region, which means the beaches will be around the 60s and 70s, the coastal valleys will primarily be around the 70s, and the inland valleys will range from the 70s to the 80s.

Clouds will also be increasing throughout the area Wednesday. The morning will start out mostly clear and by the afternoon hours the cloud cover will become more prominent. By the late afternoon, clouds will be fairly widespread from the coast to the valleys. At the same time, northwesterly winds will increase. These winds will be close to 10-15 miles per hour with potential for wind gusts to reach 30 mph throughout the afternoon and evening hours.

Looking towards the weekend, temperatures will slightly trend up and skies should go back to being mostly sunny.
