We'll see a dry day on Thursday along with a mix of sunshine and clouds. As high pressure weakens and the onshore flow increases, temperatures will cool by about 10 degrees or so for all areas up and down the coast. Daytime highs near the beaches will warm into the upper 60s and 70s, while the valleys are on tap to see temps topping out in the upper 70s to lower 80s.
This year's Halloween will bring in some big changes to our forecast, with the first storm of the season expected to arrive late in the day. Rain will pick up across the Central Coast late in the afternoon, with showers reaching Santa Barbara and Ventura by the evening hours. All in all, this looks to be a nice early season storm, with most areas expecting between .10" to .50", with higher amounts possible in the mountains. A few lingering showers will continue into the first part of our Saturday, followed by a breezy and cool afternoon. The cool and breezy weather will continue on Sunday before another round of warm and dry weather returns next week.
