Daytime highs continue to be above average across the Central Coast Monday.

Morning low clouds and some coastal marine layer will give way to mostly sunny skies. At the beaches, highs will range from the low to upper 70s. Coastal and inland valleys will be in the mid 80s to low 90s.

Northeast winds around 15 mph in the morning, then shifting lightly onshore in the afternoon.

A weak upper level low passes overnight and cools daytime highs by a few degrees on Election Day Tuesday.

The ridge rebuilds and boosts highs back into the mid to high 80s Wednesday and Thursday.

A dramatic cool down is on the way Friday. A deep upper level low will drop down from the Pacific Northwest and produce gusty, advisory-level wind conditions. Daytime highs will cool into the 60s for most locations as a result of the system.

Weekend rain chances are looking minimal at best but cannot be entirely ruled out yet. We will continue to monitor the possibility of precipitation as the week progresses.
