The Central Coast sits in a tough spot right now, there is a storm track carrying systems into Northern CA however the tail end of cold fronts are falling apart as they get here. We saw that earlier this week when we got a few drops. Two very similar opportunities are ahead (weaker actually): one Friday night into Saturday and another Sunday night into Monday. Pockets of mist and drizzle and perhaps a few sprinkles would be about it for both. On balance I think the weekend is partly cloudy with mild temps generally in the 70s with beaches in the 60s. I think winds pick up Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon, strongly NW. Thursday we could get some weak morning offshore and temps should jump a bit.
