More clouds with drizzle and showers possible

by Dave Hovde, KSBY Meteorologist

The ridge of high pressure responsible for the warm temperatures over the weekend and today is breaking down and a trough of low pressure sets up along the West Coast.

Cooler temperatures and areas of low clouds and fog have already developed at the beaches.

Tuesday a cold front will move through the Central Coast bringing drizzle/light rain to San Luis Obispo County on Tuesday night into Wednesday morning but futher south the front will likely not be effective producing any rain chances.

Temperatures on Tuesday and Wednesday will drop normal in the 60s and 70s, even inland areas drop into the 70s for highs.

High pressure is expected to rebuild across the Central Coast and should bring normal temperatures with plenty of night and morning low clouds and fog to San Luis Obispo County on Thursday into next Monday.

Former Supertyphoon Vongfong is forecast to head northeastward and become extratropical as it moves into the Gulf of Alaska next week. The leftovers of this system could actually produce unsettled weather for the Central Coast the following Thursday and Friday.

Cooler temperatures on the way Tuesday with a chance for precipitation

By RaeAnn Christensen, KSBY Forecaster

High pressure is in control, mixing that with weak offshore flow means sunny, warm weather for the Central Coast. We will see above normal temperatures through Monday. A trough of a low pressure system will bring significant cooling to the region Tuesday and Wednesday. We will also see an increase in night and morning clouds and fog. There will be a slight chance for some drizzle or light rain for most areas Tuesday night and Wednesday morning, right now it’s about a 20% chance. Some warming is expected Thursday as the low pressure system moves East. Near normal temperatures will return into the weekend.

Warm weather through Monday, then cooler temps and possible drizzle

By RaeAnn Christensen, KSBY Forecaster

High pressure continues to build in bringing a warming trend through Monday. This will also bring a decrease in marine layer cloud coverage. Cloudier and cooler weather is expected for the middle of the week. We also have a slight chance for some patchy drizzle as a trough of low pressure approaches our region. Temperatures will be back to near normal by the end of the week.

Warming trend through weekend, then fall weather returns

By RaeAnn Christensen, KSBY Forecaster

We will see a warming trend through the weekend. 70s and 80s at beaches and near 90 in the coastal valleys and mid 90s inland through Sunday or Monday. The marine layer should decrease as high pressure builds. We will see some windy conditions in some areas, up to 25 mph. Low pressure will start approaching toward the middle of the week bringing back the clouds and cooler weather. There’s a slight chance for some patchy drizzle coming with this system. Temperatures will likely warm back to near normal by the end of the week.

More sun and warmer temps in forecast

by Dave Hovde, KSBY Meteorologist

Last few days light wind flow and warm inland temps have produced plenty of low clouds at the beaches but that is set to change starting Friday.

Friday’s afternoon winds look to be stronger, perhaps as high as 25mph in the afternoon. Weekend conditions look to be dominated by a building ridge of high pressure which will generate some offshore flow also working to diminish the extent and duration of cloud cover. It’ll also produce another round of warm temps in the 70s and 80s at beaches and near 90 in the coastal valleys and mid 90s inland through Sunday or Monday.

That warmup is fairly short lived, the ridge breaks down next week and clouds return to the coast with drizzle possible by Tuesday and Wednesday morning. Later in the week northern CA looks to be in line for rain and the Central Coast is in the ‘ify’ zone. We are too far south for a slam dunk chance. Right now it looks like next Friday or Saturday looks like the best chance. Even if rain doesn’t develop the pattern change looks positive considering the warm dry pattern we are currently stuck in.
