The cold upper air low over the area which has produced rain, snow and hail is still capable of producing a little more. The low is moving off so the general amount of activity should wane but temps will cool tonight and certainly we are cold enough for more low level snow. The winter weather advisory for the area says 1-2″ is possible down to 2000ft and that advisory is thru 4am. I think some snow is possible below that level the question is could it stick with wet ground and temps, not all that likely but we have seen flurries even in SLO.

Dry conditions return on Wednesday and Thursday but temps will stay on the cool side with even the warmest spots scratching it out to reach 60, interior valleys will likely linger in the 50s.

Another trough of cold air is on the way Friday into the weekend. The system does look a lille moisture deprived but enough to provide the area with a decent chance of mostly light precip late Friday night into Saturday morning. Looks like most areas will see a quarter inch or less from this one, possibly up to a half inch along the coastal hills of SLO County.

Most areas will see sunshine by Saturday afternoon. Another fast moving system will arrive late Sunday into Monday with similar or even less precip expected.
