Another night of freezing lows with some rain opportunities down the road

Posted: Updated:

Clear skies and dry air set the stage for another very cold night and morning for all of the area.

Northern SLO county will again see low to mid-20s, coastal valleys and the Southcoast will see low to mid-30s.

Most coastal areas and the Cuyama valley have advisories for the cold overnight as it can damage sensitive plants.  People in the interior where the air will actually be the coldest do not have an advisory, however, should take precautions for pets, pipes, and plants with freezing conditions lasting 5-7 hours.

Highs will struggle thru the end of the week with most highs in the 50s and some scattered lower 60s.  This is because we are stuck at the base of an upper air trough allowing cold air to keep spilling into the area from the north.

Another upper-level low will bring us some showers Thursday. Rainfall amounts are only expected to be a few hundreds of an inch where any rain falls but snow levels will be low again: 1,750-2,000 feet which could again dust area hills. 

The weekend looks dry but another rain system is possible Monday.  Prior to today models were excited about Monday with 1" plus rain but today mid-range models like it to be light but favor a large storm late next week which could bring 1+" rain and strong winds to the area.

Long range modeling tends to change quickly so stay tuned for changed but at this point at least there is some optimism even if the details remain somewhat fuzzy at the moment.
