Happy Monday Central Coast!
As we get started today mild conditions are persisting with lots of clear skies thanks to strong winds that have lasted over the past few days. Some locations along our Southcoast saw gusts well upwards of 45mph. Thankfully Monday wind speeds will begin to calm, although slowly.
Happy Monday Central Coast. High winds are lingering to start off the week with sustained winds up to 15mph and gusts upwards of 40mph as we start the morning. They will calm today before a strong warming trend takes over. pic.twitter.com/IgAkINzMWQ— Vivian Rennie (@VivianRennieWx) March 21, 2022
The wind gusts are not only strong but they are very dry. This is wicking any moisture we got over the weekend out of our region.
Today temperatures will rise alongside continued gusty winds. This is the first full day of spring but it will feel nearly like summer.
Mild temperatures today will stay a few degrees above normal for this time of year. pic.twitter.com/czC5huAI2x— Vivian Rennie (@VivianRennieWx) March 21, 2022
This week temperatures will raise up to near record highs before a big cool down as we get closer to next week. In my opinion our best chance to set records will be in the interior valleys on Wednesday. There some locations will climb into the upper 80s, some portions in the LA basin will reach into the 90s.
Temperatures will start a strong upward trend as we start the week. They will be 15-20 degrees above normal as we challenge some records Tuesday and Wednesday. Still warm temperatures will stick around into the weekend before a large cooldown late this weekend. pic.twitter.com/9mWRFHoQjp— Vivian Rennie (@VivianRennieWx) March 21, 2022
On Thursday things will change slightly as a cold front clips the region. Temperatures to end the week will be a few degrees cooler but still well above normal for this time of year.
Over the weekend temperatures could fall back into the 60s. we are monitoring a slight chance for rain but a chance this far out is destined to change significantly.
