Happy Thanksgiving Central Coast!

To kick off the day abundant sunshine is expected, this will make a wonderful start to the day. If you are participating in any Turkey Trots across the region it will be chilly to start but overall pleasant conditions are expected. The coldest locations will be the interior valleys. There is no dense fog or cloud cover expected through the morning hours.

Most of the Central Coast will experience temperatures in the 60s and 70s for Thanksgiving (and a scattered 80-degree reading is not out of the question).

The reason for this is the offshore winds we are expecting. For most of the Central Coast, the offshore push will be NE about 10-15mph but some places may experience higher gusts than that. There are no local advisories.

Regionally, it is a different story. There are already wind advisories and a red flag warning for parts of Ventura and SoCal. Winds 20-40mph with higher gusts are likely tonight into Friday.

Larger changes are likely next week. A large and cold trough of cold air hits the region. There is even a shower chance on Monday but most folks will notice the breezy and much cooler conditions with highs pushing back into the 50s for many.

Have a great Thanksgiving Central Coast!
