A strong upper level high pressure over Nevada will move little through Friday, so expect little change in the weather across our area. Expect to see just a couple of degrees of cooling in coastal and some valley areas as onshore flow increases a bit by Friday. Slightly cooler weather is expected Saturday through Tuesday as the upper high weakens a bit. Some monsoonal moisture will bring a slight chance of thunderstorms to the mountains over the weekend....we'll need to keep a close eye on that!
For Thursday look for any lingering low clouds to burn off by mid morning...although, we could see more clouds than sun in the five cities area, specifically Pismo Beach and along for portions of the Lost Coast. Maximum daytime highs today will be close to what they were on Wednesday in most areas. The Santa Barbara South Coast will see daytime highs well above normal from mid 70's to mid 80's. Central Coast beach communities can expect to see widespread 70's. Inland temperatures will be in the mid to upper 90's. San Luis Obispo coastal areas will see 60's. Inland areas will range from 80's to even triple digit heat. Ventura County beaches will be in the upper 70's. The Valleys can expect near to triple digit heat.
A strong upper level high pressure over Nevada will move little through Friday, so expect little change in the weather across our area. Expect to see some cooling in all areas as the onshore flow increases through the weekend. And again, some Monsoonal moisture will bring a slight chance of thunderstorms to the mountains over the weekend.
