Fall is here, even if the rain isn’t yet

Chances for rain in the coming week have fallen out of the forecast for San Luis Obispo County, but the weather will still feel autumnal.

A low-pressure system making its way toward California will usher in cool temperatures today and breezy conditions. Winds will be especially strong along the coast.

John Lindsey, meteorologist at Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant, said that gusts could blow near 50 mph today along the immediate coast.

The high in Morro Bay, which is holding its annual Harbor Festival, will be near 62 degrees.

It won’t be as windy in San Luis Obispo or the North County, but it will be cooler than recent days.

According to the National Weather Service, the high should be near 71 in San Luis Obispo and 75 in Paso Robles.

Fog will shroud the coast and San Luis Obispo on Sunday morning before burning off.

Morro Bay will be 61, while San Luis Obispo will have a high of 67. Paso Robles will enjoy sunshine from the start and a high of 71.

For next week, fog will prevail along the coast and highs will be only in the low 60s.

San Luis Obispo will see morning fog before the sun appears; highs there will be in the upper 60s.

In the North County there will be more sun and heat — highs next week will be in the 70s.

A warm-up could occur next weekend, with highs in the North County near 80.
