Alternate route if there's a storm?

Hi, I have read that driving to Big Sur along the coast in bad weather is not a good idea. We will be driving there from Cambria mid January. Is there an alternate route if the weather is not conducive for driving along the coast?

Yes, just take Highway 101 north. It avoids the coast altogether. From Cambria, take Highway 46 west, which joins 101 in about 30 miles.
