Rain moves out, partly cloudy and dry Thursday

Posted at 5:12 AM, Feb 28, 2019

After a 24-hour period of light, scattered rain showers, the Central Coast is clearing up Thursday.

There is still an opportunity for light scattered showers, but that window will close just before the morning commute at 6 a.m. The roads could still be damp from yesterday’s rain, so drivers should leave extra time to get to their destination.
