Wednesday will be mostly sunny, but daytime highs will continue to be cooler and below normal. The inland valley communities will reach maximum temperatures in the upper 50s to the low 60s, while the coastal valleys and beaches will mainly be right around the low to mid-60s.

It will be another cold morning for the Central Coast as residents in coastal communities will start their day with temperatures in the 30s and low 40s. For the inland valleys, sub-freezing temperatures will be common throughout.

A hard freeze warning is is in place through the 10 o'clock hour for the interior valleys in San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara Counties as morning lows range from 22 to 25 degrees. These freezing temperatures can be especially harmful to any pets or livestock outside, as well as vegetation and crops.

Back towards the coast, stretching from northern SLO County to southern Santa Barbara County, a freeze warning is in effect through 9:00 a.m. for morning lows that could reach 28 degrees.

Winds will be shift out of the northeast through the morning before shifting out of the northwest by the afternoon. Wind speeds will mostly be moderate throughout Wednesday afternoon.

Looking ahead to Thursday, high pressure and weak offshore flow will bring clear skies and warmer temperatures that will last through the weekend.
