Clouds arrive in advance of a weather pattern change

Posted: Updated:

Tuesday was a warm day for the Central Coast with plenty of 70s for daytime highs.  Wednesday will also be mild for temps but skies become mostly cloudy with high clouds streaming in front of an area of low pressure which brings a rain chance very late Thursday night but more likely overnight into Friday morning.  That system is just one in a series of disturbances thru the weekend into early next week.

A storm Saturday afternoon into Sunday has .25-1" potential but the most active period looks to be Monday-Wednesday where 1-3" of rain is possible according to the European computer model, the American computer model also shows the same time frames for rain however cumulatively thru the whole period only puts .5-1.5" of rain.  That seems perhaps a bit conservative.  Regardless it looks to be active and it is time to stay tuned for updates on this forecast since the higher rain potential could impact recent burn areas with debris flow potential.

Thursday into early next week temps will be in the 60s as the storms are all sub-tropically fueled which brings moist air but also the milder temps even though rain potential is high.
