The warmer conditions from the weekend are carrying over to the start of the week. Monday will bring partly cloudy skies with temperatures from the upper 60s to mid-70s.
The coastal valleys will be the warmest areas Monday with temperatures expected to reach the low to mid-70s. Not too far off will be the inland valleys and beaches, which will have temperatures from the mid-60s to low 70s. Otherwise, most of the area will have high-level cloud cover throughout the morning before conditions start to clear up in the afternoon. Winds will be calm throughout the day and will stay between five to 15 miles per hour.
Rain is in the forecast for the week and the Central Coast could see it as early as Wednesday night. By Wednesday night, as the first of two storms approach the area, there will be increasing clouds as rain is expected to stick around through Thursday. This first part of the rain could produce up to .75’’ of rain. Another system is expected Friday through the Sunday. Weather models show it has the potential to bring significant rainfall, however, at this point, there is uncertainty over just how much.
