Rain is on the way to the Central Coast

The outlook for Thursday night into Saturday afternoon has not changed much, but the thinking for what might happen next week has.

Most of Thursday will feature partly cloudy skies with south winds increasing during the afternoon to about 15mph. However as night falls the winds will continue to increase with rain on the way around midnight (could be a few hours earlier or later). Ultimately it is raining before Friday morning and winds will be SE 15-30mph. .50-1.50" of rain should fall before the system pulls out Saturday afternoon. (There likely will be a lull in activity Friday night as the system is in two parts).

Sunday-Monday look dry.

Now here is where the forecast is starting to change. The computer model run Wednesday night had an interesting new view of next week's potential. Prior model runs had several cut-off lows spinning too far west for the Central Coast to see rain, now the model likes those intersecting the Central Coast for rain next Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday.
