SLO County weather forecast for the week of Nov. 11

Here is this week’s forecast by PG&E meteorologist John Lindsey.

Weather report

This Veterans Day morning will see marine low clouds and areas of dense fog along beaches and coastal valleys. Skies will clear through today. Today’s maximum temperatures will reach the 70s in the coastal valleys and North County, with 60s along the beaches.

The remnants of a cold front will pass over the county tonight through Tuesday morning, with increasing clouds and areas of drizzle along the beaches. Party cloudy and mild weather will develop by Tuesday afternoon.

Gentle to moderate (8- to 18-mph) Santa Lucia (offshore) winds will develop during the night and morning, shifting out of northwest and increasing to fresh to strong (19- to 31-mph) levels along the coast Wednesday. These winds will produce mostly clear and dry weather with relatively mild conditions.

Moderate to fresh (13- to 24-mph) Santa Lucia (offshore) winds will develop Thursday morning, shifting out of the northwest and increasing to strong to galeforce (25- to 38-mph) levels along the coast by Thursday afternoon and night. These winds will continue to produce mostly clear skies, low relative humidity levels and very high fire danger.

These windy conditions are forecast through Saturday. Most of the models and charts indicate dry conditions should continue in the early part of next week.
