Good morning, Central Coast! Happy Friday!

Even though we bid farewell to the May Grey it was only to make room for June Gloom. This morning will once again feature widespread marine influence at the beaches and the coastal valleys but one crucial change is that onshore winds are calming slightly. This will limit cloud cover in the interior valleys and allow for a warm up to begin today.

Interior temperatures warm to the low 80s on today and into the mid (maybe upper) 80s over the weekend but those gains are wiped out early next week as temperatures drop back into the 70s as the ridge departs the region.

This morning the beaches and near coastal valleys have significant cloud cover but that will clear out and bring some sunshine this afternoon.

It is day two of the Santa Maria Elks Rodeo & Parade and conditions look great! Lows overnight will be on the chilly side but will be comfortable for the evening. Saturday for the parade skies will clear and sunshine will make for the perfect day!

Congratulations to the seniors at Mission College Preparatory Catholic High School who will be graduating today! Conditions look wonderful this evening with some fog moving in after sunset!

A ridge of high pressure is moving in today and will keep the marine influence at a minimum this weekend in our interior valleys. This means a massive warm up is expected and will bring highs toward 90 over the weekend. Along the coasts there will be warming just much less significant. Daytime highs at the beaches will push into the low or mid-60s while coastal valleys return to the upper 60s and low 70s.

Next week marine layer cooling is back and we will move into a persistent "June Gloom" pattern with temps significantly below normal for this time of year.

Have a great day and a wonderful weekend!
