It will be a cool and cloudy start to the day for the Central Coast. Coupled with cloudy skies, the Central Coast, particularly San Luis Obispo County, could see some very light rainfall through the morning.

The light rainfall is due to a weak cold front moving over the area. The chance of rain will bring some cooler daytime highs as temperatures taper off to the 50s and 60s.

So, which cities might get a little bit of rain? The high-resolution forecast model is showing that the north coast could experience some of the light rain through the early afternoon. Even some of the inland valleys, like Paso Robles, could see a sprinkle.

Winds will be reasonably mild Tuesday, ranging from 10-20 miles per hour through the afternoon. By the evening, winds could shift to onshore which could allow for some cloud development over coastal regions Tuesday night.

A warm-up over the weekend could bring temperatures up to the upper 60s and low 70s as high pressure will build over the west coast. With the warmer temperatures will come 15-25 mph Santa Lucia winds.
