Here is this week’s weather forecast by PG&E meteorologist John Lindsey:
An upper-level low pressure system will produce night and morning marine low clouds with areas of fog in the coastal regions and generally near or below-normal temperatures for this time of year throughout the Central Coast through Tuesday.
Monday’s maximum temperatures are expected to reach the mid-80s in Paso Robles, while San Luis Obispo will reach the mid- to high 70s. High temperatures along the beaches will range from the high 60s to the low 70s.
Gentle to moderate (8- to 18-mph) Santa Lucia (northeasterly) winds on Wednesday and Thursday morning, combined with strong to gale-force (25- to 38-mph) northwesterly winds during the afternoon hours along the shoreline will provide mostly clear skies and higher temperatures in the county.
A high-pressure ridge will then build over most of California by the end of the week for even warmer weather. It looks like Saturday may be the warmest day, with temperatures reaching the high 90s and perhaps the low 100s in the North County and mid-80s in the coastal valleys.
Along the coastline, temperatures will range from the high 60s to the low 70s, with typical night and morning low clouds and areas of fog.
Monday’s 3- to 5-foot northwesterly (310-degree, deep-water) sea and swell (with a 5- to
8-second period) will remain at this height and period through Thursday, increasing to 4 to 6 feet with the same period Friday through Sunday.
Note: Hurricane Hilda will weaken as it heads toward the Hawaiian Islands. Swell from this tropical cyclone is not expected to affect our coastline.
Seawater temperatures will range between 56 and 61 degrees through Wednesday, decreasing to 54 and 57 degrees Thursday into Sunday.
