Monday's weather is expected to be similar to what we saw Sunday, with partly to mostly cloudy skies and temperatures near normal.

A weak offshore flow allows for some slight cooling across the coasts and coastal valleys while interior sections warm.

There is however, a slight chance of showers passing through early Monday morning.

Things start to shake-up as we're heading into Tuesday afternoon.

A winter storm will bring rain and mountain snow through Wednesday night.

Wind gusts are expected to be 30-35 mph Tuesday, with strongest gusts over foothills and mountain areas.

The rain is expected to start in San Luis Obispo County by Tuesday afternoon and spread to Santa Barbara County by Tuesday night.

Snow levels are expected to lower to 5000-6000 feet by Wednesday, with a slight chance that snow levels will lower further to mountain pass level by Wednesday night.

Rainfall totals still appear to be on the lighter side, with most areas seeing .25-.50".

Enjoy staying dry while you can!
