Happy Wednesday Central Coast!
We are officially at the halfway point of this week and with that halfway to the picture perfect weekend we will have!
That being said Wednesday will be a bit of a gusty one with temperatures a few degrees cooler than they were to kick off the week.
Temperatures today will be mild once again with many interior locations reaching the 70s this afternoon. Gusty winds are likely and will continue into the overnight hours. pic.twitter.com/f7uvx3y6hO— Vivian Rennie (@VivianRennieWx) March 9, 2022
The main weather story we will experience Wednesday will be wind gusts moving in from the north. These will increase in the afternoon. Sustained speeds upwards of 15mph will be common with gusts up to 35mph.
This is just under wind advisory criteria so I would not be surprised if a few advisories were issued, especially along our south coast Wednesday night.
Even though winds are starting off calm today, they will pick up substantially. By mid afternoon sustained winds upwards of 15mph are likely with gusts upwards of 35mph. I would not be surprised if an advisory or two is issued. pic.twitter.com/91Lni9Sdt6— Vivian Rennie (@VivianRennieWx) March 9, 2022
The winds will be the first indication that a cold front is clipping our area. That will bring some more clouds and marine influence to the region for most of the day on Thursday. A few more degrees will fall from our temperatures as well.
From there on temperatures and conditions will rebound for a near picture perfect weekend.
Today will be slightly cooler than the beginning of the week as a system clips our region to the east. That system will bring in slightly cooler conditions still and some dense fog and cloud cover. On Friday temperatures will quickly rebound for a picture perfect weekend. pic.twitter.com/GiQsNbSQ52— Vivian Rennie (@VivianRennieWx) March 9, 2022
Have a great day Central Coast!
