The Central Coast rainfall shortage this year is now greater than 5" in most places. The Central Coast counts on active Feb-March weather to stockpile rain we'll use the rest of the year.
While we have had a good number of systems this year, almost all of them have been poorly supplied with deep moisture and this Wednesday we have yet another front which will pass over the coast and fail to do much.
Earlier this week models liked as much as .30" of rain but tonight's run shows it may not rain measurably at all. And after this frontal passage it looks to get quiet again.
In terms of temperature the forecast from ealier today remains largely unchanged, 60s at the beaches and 70s in coastal valleys with near 80 degrees in the inland valleys through the weekend with a small cooling trend into early next week. There will be some night and morning low clouds near the coast in the night and morning hours before clearing, inland areas look clear to partly cloudy.
Rain or not, it'll cool down to slightly below normal temperatures the middle of next week.
