More showers into the weekend and snow levels drop low again

Posted at 11:33 AM, Feb 15, 2019

The Central Coast still sits in a trough over the West and a number of small disturbances still look to rotate thru the area into later Sunday. That will keep on and off showers in play. The total amount of additional rain looks to stay under .50” but the airmass will get cold. That means snow levels will drop from about 5000ft down to 1500 or perhaps lower Sunday.

Snow levels that low could put snow in the hills of both SLO and SB counties and some valley snow showers are not out of the question.

Highs over the weekend look only to hit the 50s with lows in the 30s

Winds will also be an issue. NW winds of 15-25mph with higher gusts are likely Friday PM into Saturday. Interior and higher elevation winds would be higher, a wind advisory may be needed for those areas.

Monday and Tuesday some night and morning offshore winds will help clear skies out and keep us dry but later Wednesday into Thursday a weak trough moves through for another chance of precipitation. The trough looks cold so lower snow levels could again be something to watch.
