Posted at 4:00 AM, May 09, 2019

A low pressure system sitting over the state is bringing increasing clouds to the area Thursday morning.

Weather models are showing parts of the interior valleys could see some sunshine by the afternoon, however, the cloudy conditions could be stubborn to clear along the coast and in the coastal valleys.

Daytime highs will likely be from the upper 60s to low 70s for the inland valleys with possible wind gusts up to 25 miles per hour. It will be slightly cooler with daytime highs ranging from the low to mid-60s for the coastal valleys and beaches.

There’s about a 20% chance of rain showers and thunderstorms over the Cuyama Valley Thursday. These chances are expected to increase Friday, which means scattered rain showers and thunderstorms are possible for much of the Central Coast on Friday.

This system could last through Saturday morning, but rainfall totals still look light and will stay at or below 0.25” for much of the area.
