A weak cold front that is bringing light rain and drizzle is moving across the Central Coast Tuesday morning.

At last check rainfall totals were insignificant and barely measurable. Most totals were either at 0.01'' or did not have measurable rainfall at all. The rest of the morning will be cloudy and wet as the system continues over the Central Coast. Most models are showing clouds breaking up by late morning, making for a mostly sunny afternoon. As this is happening, northwesterly winds will start to increase. Northwesterly winds will stay close to 10 miles per hour with gusts up to 25 through the afternoon and early evening hours.

Daytime highs will be close to the low to upper 60s for the beaches, while the coastal and inland valleys will stay closer to the upper 60s and low 70s. Temperatures will start to trend up Wednesday as high pressure redevelops, but the weekend could be a bit of mixed bag. Low pressure is expected to redevelop over the area by Sunday, which means the Central Coast could see more rain by then.
