Showers have tapered off for SLO and Santa Barbara Counties, but there may be some shower activity along some northern slopes overnight.

As conditions dry out Monday into Tuesday, the concern into the overnight hours will be freezing temperatures. A freeze warning remains in effect for SLO and Santa Barbara Counties from midnight tonight through 8 a.m. Sunday. Temperatures will fall between 29 and 32 degrees across the coldest wind sheltered portions of the Central Coast.

Snow levels remain low, dropping to about 2,500 feet. That being said, a winter weather advisory for the mountains of Santa Barbara County has been canceled as showers have weaned off.

The wind advisory for SLO County has expired but advisory-level winds will remain across the Santa Barbara County Mountains into Sunday evening.
