Southwesterly winds will be mild and range from 10-20 miles per hour for most of the day. Looking ahead to Friday, rain showers are possible in the overnight and early morning, but weather models are indicating that most of the day will be sunny and dry. Another opportunity for very light rain will be Saturday afternoon, but it will likely be a light sprinkle of rain.

Another low-pressure system that will swing over the area could bring more rain to the Central Coast Sunday night into Monday, which will be followed by dry weather for the rest of the week.
