Temps came off yesterday’s highs very quickly as expected.  Monday saw plenty of highs in the 90s up and down the Central Coast but today 70s were more common and even cooler air and wind is on the way.

NW winds 15-35mph are expected Wednesday afternoon and a frontal passage will take place later Wednesday night into early Thursday morning for a few showers but those who get rain will likely get less than .10"  More wind after that departing front will continue to put downward pressure on temps.

Friday and Saturday temps pop up a but (back into the 70s for most, Saturday could see a few 80s) with some temporary high pressure but that is quickly replaced by another trough of low pressure and another shower chance on Monday.  That system also looks to only have light rain potential.

Interestingly models also show another and better rain chance Wednesday of next week as well.  Most locations are only at about 60% of seasonal rainfall to this point so rain opportunities should be welcomed because as we get into May statistically speaking the number of rain opportunities dramatically fall.
