Warmer temps through the weekend with dense fog in some areas

By RaeAnn Christensen, KSBY Forecaster

A warming trend continues for the weekend as high pressure remains over our area. An approaching trough of low pressure will bring a cooling trend starting Monday, dropping temperatures a few degrees, dipping the lowest in the middle of the week. We may have a very slight chance of precipitation for the second half of the week, it’s still a little too early to tell. Overnight low clouds and fog will remain confined to coastal areas through the rest of the weekend, but it could get pretty dense with visibility a mile or less for some areas. The low clouds and fog will likely expand inland through at least midweek.

Mild weekend with interior cooling next week

by Dave Hovde, KSBY Meteorologist

A slight warming trend will occur through the weekend as high pressure to the east builds west. Weaker onshore flow will confine the night through morning low clouds and fog mainly to the coastal areas through Sunday. High pressure should weaken some early week to bring a cooling trend through the middle of next week. This is a forecast shift from my outlooks earlier this week which called for warming next week.

Localize beach and coast drizzle associated with the marine layer are possible over the next few nights and mornings.

A area of low pressure will approach the coastline Sunday and remain nearly stationary through Tuesday. Stronger northwesterly winds will develop and will help marine layer clearing.

Marine layer pushed in this evening

by Dave Hovde, KSBY Meteorologist

Night and morning coastal clouds are still the name of the game in the forecast and like thursday friday should also see clearing in the coastal and interior valleys but may linger a bit at west-facing beaches.

A high pressure ridge will build over California this weekend, with slightly warmer temperatures, increasing winds from the nw and that’ll produce mixing and some faster clearing of clouds at beaches.

An upper low lingers near CA to begin next week but things should warm for the second half of the week with high pressure re-building. There is potential for interior temps to again crawl back to the the 100 range.

Quiet weather into next week

by Dave Hovde, KSBY Meteorologist

With SW flow developing at the mid-levels the Central Coast will stay in a quiet weather pattern into next week.

The marine low clouds re-develop each tonight, but afternoon clearing is expected each day. We may even see some light offshore flow in the morning hours leading to pleasant daytime temps near the seasonal averages. Winds in the afternoon will be on shore about 15mph.

A weak high pressure ridge will build across the region Thursday and Friday but any boost in temps may be hard to notice.

Gentle weather pattern rest of this week

by Dave Hovde, KSBY Meteorologist

Other than some night and morning marine clouds we’ll have plenty of sunshine and generally mild temps through the rest of the work week.

Winds may go lightly offshore in the morning hours over the next few days before turning onshore in the afternoon at about 15mph. I think we’ll see plenty of marine clouds in the overnight and early morning hours as the offshore is not string enough to hinder it’s development.

If there is a trend it’ll be up a little with some slight reduction of the marine layer over the weekend.
