Friday is setting up to be another nice weather day across the Central Coast.

High pressure remains steady over the area, providing little change in the forecast through the weekend.

Most locations will see daytime highs in the upper 60s Friday. Solvang and Orcutt are expected to reach 70 degrees.

Winds will push offshore Friday morning 5-15 mph and shift onshore in the afternoon with gusts 15-25 mph possible.

Inland valley locations including Paso Robles will start the day with dense fog, clearing by late morning to mostly sunny skies.

Beach and coastal valley locations can expect fairly clear skies all day with the exception of a few clouds.

A high surf advisory is in effect through tonight for the Santa Barbara County South Coast. Waves will break 4-7 ft. on west facing beaches. Although the waves will subside Friday, there is still the risk of strong rip currents.

Heading into the weekend, the offshore flow backs off and will allow for a few degrees of cooling.
