A mid-week warm up ahead for Central Coast, meager 24-hour rain totals

Posted at 10:14 AM, Mar 10, 2019

A cool start to your Sunday as very widely, scattered showers linger in the area but a mid-week, dry warm up is headed our way.

Rain is likely Sunday night for higher elevations in SLO County which could also result in snow for elevations exceeding 4000 feet.

I-5 at the Tejon Pass and Grapevine will need to be watched because snow could have some impact on driving conditions .

Most of San Luis Obispo County and Santa Barbara County are expecting to clear out with drier conditions starting Monday, although a scattered shower could pop up here or there.

Tuesday looks to be a little drier with moderate temperatures.

Northerly winds will pick up Tuesday night into Wednesday as skies clear out.

Later into the week, temperatures will start on a warming trend in the mid to upper 60’s by Wednesday and Thursday.
