Clouds and cold front on the way

Posted at 4:17 PM, Dec 13, 2018


After a nice, warm, and sunny day for the Central Coast, a low pressure system starts to move in Friday morning, bringing cloud coverage and a 20 percent chance of rain.

A high surf advisory and a small craft advisory remains in place for Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo Counties through Saturday night. Swells are expected between 7-13 feet. It’s recommended to swim near a lifeguard stand when possible and for non-experienced boaters to cautious out on the water.

We are expecting a weak cold front to come in on Friday, dropping temperatures several digits before rising again by the weekend. A stronger cold front however knocks temperatures back down on Monday – keep the jackets close by!

While there is only a 20 percent chance of rain on Friday, most of the Central Coast will be seeing showers on Monday. The latest models from the National Weather Service now show rain chances throughout the day Monday, with rain totals still estimated around .25 of an inch.

The weather is expected to clear back up after Monday, before another storm heads our way again the following week!
