Saturday’s cold front produced about a 0.10” in most Central Coast locations with spots like Cambria and Creston seeing closer to 0.40”. Templeton and Atascadero saw 0.20”.

Dry conditions have returned to the Central Coast and will likely stick around through Tuesday afternoon as temperatures are expected to climb into the upper 60s, some into the low 70s.

A weak cold front moving through the Pacific could bring one-tenth of an inch or less Monday night into Tuesday.

The next cold front is expected to hit the Central Coast Tuesday night into Wednesday morning bringing strong winds, rain, and a chance of afternoon thunderstorms. Rainfall estimates are expected to range between 0.25” and 0.50” with up to 1 inch across the foothills of San Luis Obispo County.

The system is expected to bring colder air with it and snow levels will drop to 4,400 feet.

Meanwhile, a high surf advisory remains in effect for San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara Counties until 9 p.m. Sunday.

Breakers of 9 to 12 feet will slowly subside through the evening with the highest surf on exposed west and northwest facing shores.
