A pretty seasonal summer day for much of the Central Coast Sunday, with temperatures a few degrees warmer than Saturday in some areas.

A high pressure system is building over our region, causing temperatures to rise.

By Wednesday, temperatures could be 5-10 degrees above normal - potentially even warm enough for a heat advisory!

By the end of the week, temperatures are expected to cool back down but there's still concerns for fire weather conditions.

While our relative humidities aren't as dry as the past several days, we still have extremely strong winds.

Wind gusts are upwards of 15 mph in much of the Central Coast, causing a small craft advisory that doesn't expire until Wednesday morning.

There is the potential for sundowner winds again Sunday night but not as strong as Saturday.

Low clouds and fog in the morning are anticipated Monday, before a sunny afternoon - a pattern that will continue on Tuesday.

Have a great rest of your weekend!
