Good morning Central Coast!
To kick off the morning there is more marine influence across the region. This will drop visibility significantly for some, take caution during the morning commute, particularly along the southcoast and Santa Ynez valley.
The added marine influence and chillier temperatures are all thanks to a cold front that is pushing south into our region bringing a cooldown with it. While it brought a lot of rain to the Pacific NW now that it is close to us there isn't much left to it. Just a bit of a cooldown that will last through Thursday.
Temps today are taking a little dip, drooping into the 60s and low 70s for most. They will continue to drop until high pressure takes back control late this week.
The main thing that you will notice is the winds. The Gaviota Coastline will face the brunt of the impact with a sundowner wind event that my bring gusts upwards of 45mph this evening into early Wednesday Morning.Here is a look at the forecasted wind speeds around 8PM as well as the high wind advisory in place through 6am.
Once the cold front passes south a high pressure will push into the region this weekend and begin to warm up temps across the board. Mid to upper 70s are possible by Sunday and into eary next week.
Looking into the further extended forecast temps will likely fall slightly mid week and stay on the cooler side into the later third of April. It will not be a big cooldown but still may keep us in the 60s for a while longer. Here is the Climate Prediction Center’s 8-14 day outlook for temperatures.
Have a great day Central Coast!
