Good morning Central Coast and happy Thursday.
We are kicking off a big change in the forecast today as winds shift and we finally start to warm up!
We have been well below normal (temperature-wise) for a week, but today daytime highs will near seasonal normals.
Temperatures today are slightly warmer than they have been (we are nearing normal highs for this time of year) but we will still have a lot of gusty winds sticking around. pic.twitter.com/lIjN56IgH4— Vivian Rennie (@VivianRennieWx) May 12, 2022
Most locations in the coastal valleys will be a few degrees each side of 70 with upper 70s possible in the interior valleys.
We will continue to see substantial warming each day through Saturday.
The warming trend we are starting today will increase day after day until Saturday when highs will be above average and interior valleys could reach into the 90s. A passing cold front will drop temperatures back down a bit to start off next week. pic.twitter.com/VmMFZNnNak— Vivian Rennie (@VivianRennieWx) May 12, 2022
Saturday's highs will be the warmest of the forecast with some 90s possible in the interior valleys of San Luis Obispo county.
Next week will be a few degrees cooler than Saturday but will still be at or above seasonal normals.
Have a great day Central Coast!
