Yesterday the sticky part of the forecast as about the upcoming Sunday-Tuesday time frame. The European computer model showed not just a rain chance but a soaker while the American model showed zilch. Well, models came into alignment today and to the side of the dry American model. This is a disappointing development since we are at 5% of seasonal values for rain this rain season. If you read this weather post yesterday you'll know I am not shocked the dry solution is being preferred by the models today.
But the news is not all bad, the American model does show rain. Lighter opportunities middle of next week but a better chance of a much larger storm around late next week into and thru the weekend (Jan 5th-8th). That has inches of potential, but it is at the end of the model run and those forecasts are always subject to quite a bit of change. Stay tuned. [9:19pm update: I just checked the latest model run and it backs up the storm to something like Sunday or Monday so there is definitely some adjusting to be done here, let's just hope the models continue to see it]
Until then more night and morning offshore flow and locally windy tonight into Thursday morning. It would be the typical spots in SLO county that could see gusty winds stronger than 25mph: Cuesta Grade and the 41 highway corridor out by Morro Bay and locally around the eastern side of the city of SLO. However, the general offshore push should just be 5-15mph with local gusts to 20.
Winds should turn back onshore in the afternoon again tomorrow. More 70s for highs can be expected.
