SLO County weather forecast for week of Aug. 12: Can you say picture perfect?

A typical Central Coast summer weekend will continue this week — with no extreme heat in the immediate forecast.

The northwesterly winds will decrease on Monday through Tuesday. Consequently, the marine layer will deepen and become more persistent in the coastal valleys and along the beaches, while the inland valleys will warm 90s.

This condition should yield large temperature gradients between the beaches and the inland. A cooling trend is expected to develop over the second half of this week allowing for temperatures to fall back to near-normal across the interior and slightly below-normal along the coast.

Overall, no extreme heat or adverse weather expected this upcoming week.

Combined with the northwesterly sea and swell will be a 1- to 2-foot Southern Hemisphere (220-degree, deep-water) swell (with a 15- to 17-second period) on Sunday and will remain at this height through Wednesday.
