Forecasters expect Monday to be sunny with daytime highs in the mid-60s on the South Coast and overnight lows in the upper 40s. Tuesday through Thursday should be mostly sunny with high temperatures in the low 60s.
A new storm system is likely to arrive on the Central Coast later in the week with a chance of rain Thursday night, diminishing to a chance of showers Friday. Gusty northwest winds are possible Friday as the storm moves on.
Weekend temperatures are only expected to reach the upper 50s.
