Temperatures are stepping back slightly Wednesday. Coasts will be in the mid 60s to low 70s. Interior areas are staying warm in the 80s.
The ridge of high pressure is weakening and flattening as it is being pushed by an approaching trough. By the evening, onshore flow will increase and bring back the marine layer to the Central Coast.
Low pressure will cool temperatures a few more degrees Thursday. Strong onshore flow will make for slower clearing of cloud cover.
Gusty onshore winds may pick up Friday night and Saturday, warming the region slightly. There will be little change in sky cover through the weekend with a daily overnight marine layer.
Mother's Day is looking near to slightly below average. By the middle of next week, the region will warm slightly with decreasing onshore flow.
