SLO County weather forecast for the week of Feb. 3

Special to The TribuneFebruary 2, 2014 

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

Weather report

A high-pressure ridge will build over California today, producing partly cloudy to mostly clear and dry weather through Wednesday. Temperatures will remain near-normal across the Central Coast through mid-week, with chilly overnight temperatures in the upper 20s across the North County and upper 30s in the coastal valleys.

A cold front will produce scattered rain showers and cooler conditions Thursday as high pressure is nudged westward by a trough of low pressure over the Great Basin.

This morning’s forecast models are in fairly good agreement regarding a system that could bring widespread rainfall to Northern California.

However, the Central Coast may remain mostly dry.

Today’s surf report

Today’s 7- to 9-foot northwesterly (300-degree, deep-water) sea and swell (with a 5- to 14-second period) will decrease to 4 to 6 feet (with a 5- to 15-second period) on Tuesday. This northwesterly sea and swell will further lower to 3 to 5 feet by Wednesday into Thursday morning.  

Increasing northwesterly winds Thursday afternoon into Friday will generate 4- to 6-foot northwesterly (300-degree, deep-water) sea and swell (with a 5- to
13-second period) on Thursday afternoon into Friday.

Very low swell conditions are expected next weekend.

Seawater temperatures

Seawater temperatures will range between 54 and 56 degrees through Sunday.
