After a mostly rainy weekend, some light rain is still possible for the Central Coast early Monday morning. Weather models are indicating that areas like San Luis Obispo could get some very light rain around 6:00 a.m., but after that, it will be cloudy for the rest of the morning. By about 1:00 p.m., expect clear skies, temperatures from the upper 50s to low 60s and winds between 10-15 miles per hour.

The weather pattern will shift early Tuesday morning as more rain is on the way. Another atmospheric river event is expected to bring heavy rainfall to San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara Counties Tuesday through Wednesday. Areas in the foothills and mountains could receive anywhere from 1”-4” of rain, while the coastal valleys and beaches could get 1.5”-3”.  Right now, weather models are indicating that rainfall will be heaviest during the afternoon and evening hours Tuesday. Southerly winds will also increase and range from 35-45 miles per hour.  Potential impacts with this storm include moderate debris flow, roadway flooding, flooding in creeks and low lying areas and travel delays. The storm will start to break up Wednesday afternoon and lingering showers are expected Thursday and Friday.
