Posted at 4:25 AM, Apr 16, 2018

A weakening cold front could continue to bring more light rain across the Central Coast. Although not all of it was measurable, parts of San Luis Obispo did receive some rain overnight.

Rocky Butte: 0.08’’

San Simeon: 0.04’’

Atascadero: 0.12’’

San Luis Obispo Reservoir: 0.04’’

Arroyo Grande Creek: 0.06

Oceano: 0.08’’

As of Monday morning, areas within Santa Barbara County didn’t have measurable rain, but that will likely change going into the rest of the morning. Models indicate more rain potential by 9:00 a.m. throughout both counties, but it’s not likely this system will bring measurable rain to the south coast of Santa Barbara County. Scattered showers are in the forecast Monday but the system will likely clear the area by mid-evening.

In combination with a low-pressure system and gusty conditions, a wind advisory will go into effect at 2:00 p.m. for parts of Santa Barbara County. Those areas include just south of Point Conception along the coast down to Carpinteria. Winds will range from 15-25 miles per hour with potential for gusts to reach 40 mph. The advisory is scheduled to expire at 3:00 a.m. Tuesday.

Daytime highs north of Point Conception are going to be below seasonal averages Monday and mostly in the upper 50s to low 60s. South of Point Conception temperatures will be slightly warmer and range from the low to upper 60s. Dry conditions are expected the next couple of days before more light scattered showers Wednesday night.
