Cooling off Friday, tracking showers next week

Mid to high level clouds will appear along the Central Coast for our Friday, creating partly cloudy skies in some areas. Other places may see some fog, reducing visibility, but fog and lower clouds should clear out quickly. While Ventura will still see weak Santa Ana winds, the rest of the Central Coast will see winds transitioning back to Northwesterly flow, meaning that the sea breeze will cool temperatures down by a few degrees. Expect to see highs in the upper 60s and lower 70s near the beaches and middle to upper 70s inland. No watches, warnings or advisories have been issued, and Friday into the weekend looks rather mundane.

Offshore flow returns and temperatures warm Saturday. We may see some small amounts of clouds early in the morning but sunny skies and pleasant conditions by the evening. Temperatures will warm quickly for the day and will be noticeably warmer than Friday. Highs reach into the middle to upper 70s near the coast and 80s inland. Overnight lows will be rather chilly so you might want a jacket heading out Sunday early morning.

Sunday looks to be copy and paste from Saturday, other than a cooler morning. Temperatures will be around the same, sky cover will look identical and winds stay calm. All the focus returns to next week. By Monday, clouds start to increase and temperatures begin to cool. An atmospheric river looks to set up, transporting a large amount of moisture into the region. A lot of models look to be in good agreement that the Central Coast will no doubt see rain, but the amounts of rain are less certain. If the atmospheric river does set up as most models are projecting, then we could be seeing a substantial amount of rain. Details will be certain by Monday, so keep an eye on the forecast and plan accordingly.
