Cold weather to continue through Saturday in SLO County

newsroom@thetribunenews.comJanuary 8, 2013 

Cold temperatures both during the day and overnight will be the main weather feature for San Luis Obispo County at the end of this work week.

Local forecaster John Lindsey said a dry cold front — one that brings clouds but no rain — will flow over the county Wednesday. A second cold front on Thursday brings a chance of scattered showers, but Lindsey said most areas won’t receive much if any precipitation.

Strong northwesterly winds will come with these storm systems. They will usher in cold air that will keep highs in the North County in just the 40s, while the coastal valleys and beaches will be in just the 50s.

Overnights will be even colder — 20s in the North County and 30s elsewhere. These temperatures will be in place Thursday through Saturday, Lindsey said.

By Sunday, temperatures will start slowly warming up. Lindsey said no major rain storms are expected for the foreseeable future.

The National Weather Service has also issued a coastal flooding statement for later this week because of high tides. The NWS said that some minor flooding of beaches and coastal parking lots might occur. The highest tide is expected Friday morning, the NWS said.
