Temperatures from earlier this week backed off as low clouds continue to build Saturday afternoon and evening.

A low pressure system makes its way to the Central Coast bringing rain potential Sunday with isolated thunderstorms and mountain snow in higher elevations.

The bulk of Sunday rain looks to arrive in the morning (6 a.m. to 9 a.m), becomes scattered in the afternoon and lingers into late evening.

Rainfall totals are expected to range from 0.10″ to 0.25″ for the coast and valleys with the exception of up to 0.50″ in some foothill areas. Mountains could see up to 1″.

Interior valleys could see temperatures in the upper 50’s, low-60’s, coastal areas looking at low to mid-60’s.

National Weather Service says these temps are expected to be 15-25 degrees below normal for this time of year.

Memorial Day looks to be dry for the most part, but remaining wet conditions cannot be ruled out.

Monday is expected to have partly cloudy skies, but marine layer clouds look to return in the evening and Tuesday morning for coastal areas.

If you are traveling in mountains Sunday evening, it is advised you drive with caution and prepare for hazardous winter weather driving conditions.

Other than that, Tuesday should be mostly sunny with breezy onshore winds.

A warming and drying trend is expect early next week.
