A low pressure system is going to bring more scattered rain activity through the morning commute. Rainfall amounts will vary from city to city and there's still a chance of thunderstorms and rainfall rates could surpass 0.75'' per hour. By the late afternoon, the rain will start to level off and the Central Coast will be mostly cloudy.

Tuesday produced some significant rainfall across the Central Coast. Pismo Beach received over 2.50'' of rain!

Daytime highs will be close to the low 60s for the inland valleys. Conditions will be slightly warmer for the coastal regions and close to the mid to upper 60s. The gusty winds have diminished for the Central Coast, and most wind speeds should stay below 20 miles per hour Wednesday.

Wednesday won't be the last day the Central Coast will receive some precipitation. This low pressure system could produce scattered showers Thursday, particularly over Santa Barbara County's mountains and foothills. It isn't until Friday when the low moves east and conditions dry out Friday. However, there's another chance for rain Saturday and Sunday.
