Thanks to high pressure some 70s are expected this week

Good morning Central Coast!

To kick off the morning there is beautiful conditions, clear skies are present across the region with barley a trace of the lingering fog from yesterday morning. We are also just on the heels of the full moon (known as the Snow Moon) that is making conditions relatively bright even ahead of sunrise.

As we kick off the day there will be sunshine and temperatures will respond quickly. This will result in warming daytime highs: 60s for most on Tuesday but 70s for Wednesday and Thursday before temps ease Friday.

It is also of note that there is a moderate Santa Ana wind event taking place in the LA Basin over the next couple of days. Thankfully the Central Coast is not impacted too much from these winds. That being said you might notice a slight uptick in the winds over the next few days. Winds will be sustained from the NE 10-15mph but we could see gusts up to 20 mph over the next couple of days. Winds shift offshore in the night and morning hours and back onshore in the afternoon as high pressure builds in.

Enjoy the 70s possible over the next couple of days because they will not stick around for long. On Friday the winds will change a bit and a cold front will push its way towards the region. This will drop temps back into the 60s for Friday and add a bit more cloud cover but the question remains if there is rain alongside this system.

A few models are showing rain pushing into the region early Saturday. If this does happen the rain will be light (at best) and clear out by Sunday.

Chilly temps will remain in place through the extended forecast.

Have a great day Central Coast!
