Wednesday there will be mostly clear skies throughout the Central Coast but there will be some cloud coverage along the coastline. Daytime highs will range from the mid-50s to low 60s throughout the area. Winds are looking to be mild and will remain within a 10-20 mile per hour range, increasing in the afternoon hours.

A freeze warning is in effect until 9:00 a.m. Wednesday in San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara Counties since overnight temperatures are still in the high 20s to low 30s range. Another advisory expiring Wednesday morning is a high surf advisory for both San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara Counties coastline.

The big talker right now is the rain that is on the way Thursday. A cold front will spread over the Central Coast Thursday morning, bringing rain with it that will remain throughout most of the day. Right now, by Friday, rain potential for Carpinteria and Montecito is just below one inch. These models could change but are being closely monitored. With this storm, there is potential for flash flood and debris flow. Santa Barbara County has issued new evacuation warnings for residents who near the Thomas, Sherpa and Whittier Fire burn areas.
