A cold front finally starts to push across the Central Coast late tonight thru Wednesday. The system is limited due to stronger low pressure and dynamics passing too far north of the area, regardless some on and off showers along the front are likely. The SLO county northcoast and hills could see up to .50″ but much of the area is likely to see .25″ of rain or less.
The clouds and showers should limit temperatures in SLO county to the lower 60s on Wednesday but Santa Barbara county could still see upper 60s as the front arrives later and with less impact.
We’ll slowly turn a temperature corner on Thursday and Friday before a very pleasant weekend in sight. In fact tmeps on Sunday and Monday look to be in the 70-75 range. I think we stay dry thru the first week of April but there are some signs that the second half of the month could contain some rain opportunities so don’t put away the umbrellas just yet.
