geweather@pge.comMay 13, 2013 

Here is this week’s weather forecast by PG&E meteorologist John Lindsey.

Weather report

Paso Robles hit 101 degrees Saturday, the first time this year that the city hit the century mark.

Persistent northwesterly (onshore) winds will produce marine low clouds and fog along the beaches and coastal valleys during the night and early morning, clearing during the late morning and afternoon. The North County will remain clear.

Temperatures at the beaches will reach the low to mid-60s along the northwesterly facing beaches (Morro Bay, Los Osos, Montaña De Oro and the Nipomo Mesa); the high 60s along the westerly facing beaches (Pismo Beach and Cambria); and the low 70s along the southwesterly facing beaches (Cayucos, Avila and Shell beaches).

Maximum temperatures in the coastal valleys will reach the mid-80s today, cooling to the mid- to high 70s on Tuesday through next Monday. The North County will range from the high 80s to the low 90s through next Monday. In other words, not a whole lot of change in the current weather pattern is expected through this week.
