The start of this week is looking very different from the first full week of May. A cold front is going to push through the area Monday and Tuesday, which could result in light scattered showers across the Central Coast.

Marine layer and coastal fog is filling in over the beaches, coastal and inland valleys Monday morning. By the afternoon, clouds could be stubborn to clear due to strong onshore flow, making for a partly sunny afternoon.

Daytime highs for the beaches will stay close to the upper 50s to mid-60s, while the coastal and inland valleys will be closer to the upper 60s and low 70s. Temperatures will continue to cool down through Tuesday before they start to warm up towards the end of the week.

There's about a 10% chance the North Coast could see some light precipitation Monday morning, but the better chances for rain will be late Monday night through Tuesday. Between that time, there's a 20-30% chance of rain and the rainfall will be more like drizzle than. Rainfall totals will be on the lighter side and under a tenth of an inch.
