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.

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.

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.

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.
