Another cold front is on the way for the Central Coast this weekend. This front looks to touch off a few showers but it will not be as strong as the storm earlier this week.

I light some folks will stay dry and even the high side of the system probably produces .25″ of rain. The rain could start early in the say, but the highest opportunity for showers will be the afternoon, by evening the system will have moved on. Sunday looks dry.

Highs this weekend look to be in the upper 50s inland with lower to mid 60s at the coast. Sunday could be as cool, if not cooler inland.

Offshore winds could help a little Monday at the coast and get temps back into the low to mid 60s, but inland temps likely stay in the upper 50s to lower 60s.

Tuesday-Wednesday a larger low pressure system looks to track into California. It looks to have increasing southerly winds to supply the storm. Total rainfall amounts with this system could range between 1.00 and 2.50 inches.

The long-range models are indicating wet and unsettled weather continuing through the first part of December. In fact, the long-range models are advertising a potentially stronger system moving into the Central Coast next weekend.
