Friday will be another dry and cloudy day for the Central Coast.

Daytime highs will continue to range from the low to mid-60s with cooler conditions in the interior valleys. Ten to 20 mile per hour winds are in the forecast through the afternoon, but wind levels will increase from 20-30 mph by Friday night.

Weather models are showing rain could arrive on the Central Coast as early as 9:00 p.m., mostly in areas in southern San Luis Obispo County and most of the coastal valleys and beaches in Santa Barbara County. The rain will continue through Saturday morning with lighter shower activity into early Saturday night. Thunder and lightning are also a possibility in the overnight hours when rainfall rates will be most intense.

This storm system, which is still considered an atmospheric river (AR) event, could produce 0.5’’-1.5’’ of rain for the coastal valleys and beaches. And close to 2’’ for the foothills in northwestern San Luis Obispo County.

The Central Coast will get a break from the rain Monday, and then a second system will return Tuesday and will likely last through Thursday.
