The heaviest rain has moved on from this system but light, scattered showers are possible throughout the day Monday. Primarily though, we will dry out by this afternoon with partly to mostly cloudy skies.

We get a brief respite from the wet weather Tuesday, however another storm sets up to bring rain as soon as Tuesday night. Rain will increase into Wednesday, producing another half inch to inch of rain across the area. Winds will also pick up to 20-30 mph, with the arrival of the midweek storm.

Thursday is another dry day for the Central Coast but Friday through the weekend looks to be wet again.

Long range models are forecasting rain for much of the following week as well.
