Warm, dry conditions will continue this afternoon and through the weekend as offshore winds stick around.
St. Patrick’s Day will see temperatures just above 80 degrees in San Luis Obispo and mid to high 70’s elsewhere. Sunny to partly cloudy skies will remain in place through Monday.
By Tuesday, expect more cloud coverage ahead of rain expected on Wednesday. Models show a trough hitting the coast late Tuesday and Wednesday, but differ on the details.
Enjoy the weekend with temperatures well into the 70s and even lower 80s in some warmer coastal & valley locations. Rain is expected to move back into #SoCal by mid-week though with another storm or two possible before the end of March. #CAwx #LAweather pic.twitter.com/5ckX2xECSy

Some models indicate the possibility of a quarter inch of rain by Wednesday with half an inch by next weekend. Others show a much weaker system.
