WEATHER STORY
Warm afternoons and cool nights will be the trend for the foreseeable future
. If you enjoy the sunshine, clear skies, above-average temperatures, and dry conditions... this is the weekend and week for you. As far as rain, most moisture will hold off until at least December 4th and 5th, with better chances possibly the 11th. However, we're still a ways from those dates, so there is still some uncertainty.

Overnight: Mostly clear with a few passing high clouds. Cool, with lows in the upper 30s to 40s on the coast and upper 20s to 30s inland. For higher elevations, lows could remain slightly warmer.

Saturday: Mostly sunny with a few high clouds passing through early. Light offshore breezes early in the day will bring the warm, dry air right to the coast. A few degrees warmer, with widespread 70s.

Sunday: More of the same! Similar temperatures are expected for Sunday, widespread 70s across the Central Coast. Clear skies from sunrise to sunset.

Extended: It will be more of the same throughout the next week. The ridge of high pressure looks to nudge into our area a little more so mid to late week, warming our temperatures ever so slightly. Expect occasional passing high clouds as well. Lows will remain on the chilly side, especially for interior valley locations.
