It was a pretty mild Saturday for much of the Central Coast.

Stratocu from off the ocean continued along the Central Coast early this afternoon, along with some isolated light rain.


Rain chances continue Sunday afternoon into Sunday evening, as a dissipating cold front moves into the area.


Any precipitation over northern areas will be on the lighter side, except locally up to .25" in NW San Luis Obispo County foothills.

Partly cloudy skies can be expected through the middle of next week.

Offshore northerly gradients will bring strong, gusty winds to Santa Barbara County mountains and SBC South Coast, prompting a wind advisory.

Wind advisories will continue through 9 p.m. Saturday night and likely be issued again Sunday.

Northerly gradients will again increase Sunday night into Monday, then persist into Tuesday with another rounds of gusty north winds near advisory levels expected, especially along the SBC South Coast.

Similar temperatures Sunday are expected then slightly cooler for Monday.

Large (10-15 ft) longer period swells will impact the area Sunday night through Tuesday.

Large high tides between 7-7.4 ft are likely each morning Sunday through Tuesday.

Have a great weekend!
