Wednesday and Thursday expect bright and breezy conditions with highs primarily in the low to mid 60s. Lows primarily in the 40s.
The upper level ridging will weaken Thursday night followed by a generally weak upper level trough on Friday. This upper level trough will have an associated surface cold front which should move inland over San Luis Obispo County while weakening late Friday evening. This front will bring a slight chance of rain to northern San Luis Obipso County at that time, otherwise varying amounts of clouds will accompany the front mainly for San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara Counties. Onshore flow will increase substantially on Friday to help cool things down a few degrees especially for the coast and valleys, with many of these areas dropping to 2-6 deg below normal.
