There isn't a lot that is changing in the forecast Friday morning because the morning low clouds still remain over the coastal regions and valleys.
Gradual clearing will take place for the valleys over the course of the morning, but expect some linger clouds along the coast through early
afternoon. Due to onshore flow, it is possible that some beaches will struggle to see the sun Friday.

Southwesterly winds will develop along the coast Friday with wind speeds reaching 15 miles per hour. Northwesterly winds will also develop across some of the coastal valleys, also reaching 15 mph at their peak. It will be a different story for the inland valley communities as winds are expected to gust from 25-30 mph from the afternoon through the early evening.

Temperatures will be right around the mid to upper 60s for the beaches Friday through the end of the weekend. Most coastal valley areas will be close to the mid to upper 70s Friday with decreasing temperatures closer to the 60s by Sunday. The cooling trend is due to a trough of low pressure that will move over the state Sunday through Monday. The inland valleys will have daytime highs from the upper 80s to the upper 90s Friday, but by Sunday the trough will bring about 30 degrees of cooling to the interiors and daytime highs will be closer to the mid to upper 60s.
