The weather is expected to be cold and mostly cloudy this week
Hello Central Coast! Happy Sunday.
Here’s what we can expect to see for the rest of the weekend in the new work week. We expect to see cooler conditions this week, with Tuesday through Thursday being the coldest. Fortunately, the warming trend is expected to begin on Friday. More low clouds and patchy fog will continue to spread over areas closer to the coast every night during the morning hours, with the possibility of drizzle or light rain. Unfortunately, we’ll see gloomy June conditions for the rest of the week, as overcast skies will surround the Central Coast. Let’s dive in!
On the Central Coast, we had another gloomy day on Sunday, similar to what we’ve seen over the past few days. We are likely to see the same conditions repeated on Monday and perhaps over the next few days. The marine layer is still attached along the coast and is not expected to move out of the area due to the upper low bringing those cold conditions to the Central Coast. As I mentioned previously in Saturday’s newscast, the reason for the cold conditions we’re seeing is due to a low making its way across Central and Southern California, which will bring temperatures down Tuesday into Thursday.
We will continue to see more low clouds and patchy fog spreading to areas closer to the coast each night through the morning hours, with the possibility of drizzle or light rain.
Our units indicate that there will be near advisory northerly winds blowing southwest of Santa Barbara County, in Refugio and Gaviota, over the next few evenings, which will keep low clouds mostly away from that area.
Sunday evening winds are expected to reach 42mph at 9pm, so please be sure to drive carefully tonight along the South Coast.
With these gloomy and cold conditions continuing for most of the week, you can expect the start of the work week to be fairly mild. Paso Robles will see temperatures 16 degrees below the average temperature of 94 degrees, while San Luis Obispo will be well below 10 degrees below the average temperature of 80 degrees.
Some cities near the south coast will see temperatures in the high 70s, so be sure to pack a light jacket at the start of your day!
On Friday, the National Meteorological Directorate expected that temperatures will rise slightly and continue until the end of next week, but temperatures will likely not return to normal levels by the next work week.
