Marine layer clouds continue to linger through the afternoon hours for coastal valleys this weekend and into next week.

There will be some clearing after Monday on the Central Coast, but for many areas it will remain gray.

However, Inland valleys should see sunshine for most of the day.

Temperatures in the coast and valleys will remain on the cool side due to stubborn marine layer.

Daytime highs will hover in the mid to 60’s at the beach and mid 70’s in the valleys.

A weak storm approaches southern California Sunday afternoon and could potentially bring scattered showers to south coast communities.

Higher elevations could see thunderstorms Sunday afternoon.

Showers will become more spread out Sunday night into Monday night and could affect southern Santa Barbara counties.

Some areas in SLO County could see light drizzle, but it is unlikely.

If rain happens it’ll only add up to hundredths of an inch.

Strong offshore winds will make for gusty conditions in the foothills heading into next week.

Warmer and clearer conditions are expected mid-week to the beginning of next weekend.

There is a potential for another rain opportunity next weekend however, but the models don’t agree on its characteristics.
