Overnight lows drop to the 20s and 30s

Posted at 4:19 AM, Feb 19, 2019

Overnight lows across the Central Coast are proving to be cold as an upper-level low-pressure system continues its way over the area. Just before 3:00 a.m., Paso Robles was at 28 degrees and Avila Beach was at 34 degrees. A Freeze Warning will remain in place through 8:00 a.m. for San Luis Obispo and Northern Santa Barbara Counties, so locals can expect frosty conditions as they’re getting their days started.

Daytime highs will still sit below average and range from the low to upper 50s. Northwesterly winds will range from about 20-30 miles per hour on Tuesday but will stay below advisory level.

The upper-level trough will shift over the area Wednesday and dig into the state that night through Thursday. Along with a cold air mass, it’s going to bring more potential for snowfall as low as 1,500 feet. That means the coastal valleys and foothills could see some snow in both San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara Counties. Scattered showers will be likely Wednesday afternoon through Thursday but rain totals right now look to be on the lighter side. Right now, the area could receive up to .40’’ of rain.
