High surf this weekend will pound Central Coast beaches, as well as the Ventura County beaches. In addition, with tides at their peak, the potential for coastal flooding and beach erosion exists this weekend as well for areas north of Point Conception. These large and powerful waves could lead to damage of property and structures, and caution should be exercised this weekend along the coast.
Otherwise, moisture will be exiting the area through the weekend, with dry weather returning. Initially we'll stay partly to mostly cloudy on Saturday, with better clearing expected by Sunday. Temperatures on Saturday will warm into the 60s and very low 70s, followed by more 70s in our forecast as we close out the weekend.
High pressure will continue to strengthen early next week, with Mother Nature delivering us a warm and dry forecast. Temperatures look to peak on Tuesday, at which time we'll see 70s and some very low 80s. We'll see a few degrees of cooling on Christmas Eve, but still it looks like a warm day with mostly 70s out there. Further cooling is expected from Christmas Day through Friday as an inside slider storm moving inland to our north cools us down, but doesn't deliver us any rainfall. If anything, this storm could be a wind producer late next week.
