Offshore winds have picked up in the overnight hours across San Luis Obispo County. A wind advisory is in place through 9 a.m. and peak wind gusts have been close to 35 miles per hour for cities like San Luis Obispo.

After the advisory expires, mild to moderate winds will remain in the forecast but skies will partly to mostly cloudy with another day of warm daytime highs. Thursday will be the last day of hot conditions before a significant cool-down. Temperatures across the coastal and inland valleys will be in the 80s and 90s and the beaches will be right around the 70s.

Looking ahead to Friday, a low-pressure system is going to quickly make way over the state and will bring cold temperatures and a chance of rain Friday night through Saturday morning and a chance of scattered showers Sunday. It's possible that coastal regions could receive 0.25''0.5'' and valley and mountain regions could receive up to 1'' of rain over the three-day period.

At the same time, temperatures will drop to the 50s and 60s with the coldest temperatures expected Saturday and Sunday. By Monday, temperatures will remain cool but skies are expected to be sunny.
