Today and Friday will continue to be windy, local forecaster John Lindsey says, and then a late-spring storm will drop down the West Coast on Saturday and bring overcast, drizzly weather and even potential rain showers to San Luis Obispo County.
Lindsey's morning forecast said the strong winds that began blowing Wednesday will crank up again this afternoon before finally relenting late Friday.
Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant had a 59 mph gust and sustained winds of 45 mph Wednesday, Lindsey said.
Today will be equally breezy, and also cooler. Highs along the coast will only be in the 50s and 60s. San Luis Obispo should reach a high in the high 60s. The North County will be in the 80s.
The late spring storm will arrive on Friday, bringing with it even cooler temperatures. Lindsey said the high on Friday will only reach the 50s and low 60s countywide. Fog, drizzle and even rain showers could develop Friday night into Saturday afternoon.
High pressure will then build back over the region and Sunday should see clearing, with Memorial Day expected to be sunny and warmer, especially in the North County, Lindsey said.
