Sunday evening forecast Jan 12th

A beautiful day with cool to mild temperatures and light sea breezes. The strong northerly winds have pretty much ended with the exception of wind prone areas such as near the Gaviota Pass/ Refugio. Some patchy low lying dense fog is possible as the night turns to morning on Monday. Higher than normal surf has prompted the National Weather Service to issue a High Surf Advisory for the Central Coast, along west and n-west facing beaches, through Monday.  As for temperatures on Monday, you can expect a chilly start with highs slowly warming in to the upper 50's and 60's by the afternoon.
Looking ahead, another are of low pressure will race through our region by Tuesday with just slight chances for sprinkles. Forecast models did hint at some rain yesterday, now they are seeing yet more wind rather than moisture. With that said, inland areas and the farther north you are, could get a quick shower or two. Wednesday look windy and cool and then by Thursday, another and better organized storm takes aim at us!. Again, the brunt of the storm still wants to stay more north than south, but forecast is bullish on at least some showers getting in to Southern California. We could see upwards of a half an inch to an inch. There is also a good chance that very cold air will rush in helping to lower snow levels to below 4000-feet. That of course means we all need to keep an eye on the I-5 and Grapevine for traffic issues/closures in to next Friday as showers exit the region. Next weekend so far looks dry with cloudy skies and more cool temperatures.
