Saturday, surface winds are expected to decrease off the coast, which will allow for warmer temperatures. The ridges in the upper levels and mid-levels will continue to track through the region, with the centers passing through overnight on Friday. Moisture is expected to persist in the upper levels, with light clouds to partly cloudy conditions likely again on Saturday. As mentioned in the initial forecast, surface winds will likely come in from the northwest during the day, then shift to the south and southeast during the evening and night as downslope flow occurs from the Santa Lucia Range.
On Sunday, the backside of the ridges will be located over the region, with winds primarily from the south to southwest. Moisture is expected to move into the mid and upper levels, resulting in mostly cloudy to overcast conditions throughout the day. The cloud cover along with northwesterly winds at the surface will bring slightly cooler temperatures to the region than seen on Saturday.
