Here is this week’s weather forecast by PG&E meteorologist John Lindsey.
An extended period of gale-force northwesterly winds along the coastline will continue through Friday. Except for a few areas of night and morning coastal low clouds, these winds will produce mostly clear skies, including at the beaches, and below-seasonal temperatures Monday in the North County. In fact, temperatures Monday will generally range between 5 and 10 degrees below normal.
The area of low pressure responsible for the below-seasonal temperatures will shift east into the Great Basin, while high pressure will gradually build back over the West Coast on Wednesday. This condition will produce much warmer conditions, which will increase to the year’s first 100 readings in the North County.
The coastal valleys will warm into the mid- to high 80s, while the beaches will remain in the 60s, except for Cayucos and Avila Beach which will reach the low 70s. Overall, it looks like the weather will go from below-normal temps this past weekend to above-normal temperatures this weekend through the end of June.
Increasing northwesterly winds along the California coastline will generate 6- to 8-foot northwesterly (310-degree, deep-water) sea and swell (with a 5- to 12-second period) on Monday into Friday.
Seawater temperatures will range between 50 and 52 degrees through Friday.
