Low clouds and fog is forming over parts of the Central Coast Wednesday morning. The foggy conditions are filling in over Santa Ynez and the coastal valleys in Santa Barbara County and San Luis Obispo County. The clouds will start to mix out following the morning commute and northwesterly winds will start to increase across the area.

Northwesterly winds will generally stay close to 10 miles per hour with potential for gusts to reach 20 mph through early evening.

Some cities across the Central Coast are expected to reach temperatures considered above average. For example, San Luis Obispo's average daytime high is 62 degrees, but the daytime high for Wednesday will be right around 69 degrees.
The coastal and inland valleys will stay close to the upper 60s to low 70s, while the beaches will be right around the mid-60s.

The main talker in this week's forecast is the chance for rain. Rain chances have been fluctuating all week, but right now it stands that there is still a 20% chance late Friday night into early Saturday morning. If the Central Coast receives any of this rain, totals will be light and close to .10''-.25''.
