A low pressure system that is making it's way over the state could have minor impacts on the Central Coast.

Commuters can expect a mostly sunny morning with some high level clouds that will increase through the late afternoon. Morning temperatures will still be in the 30s for the inland valleys and right around the 40s and 50s for the coastal valleys and beaches. By the afternoon, northerly winds will be breezy at times, ranging anywhere from 10-20 miles per hour at their peak.

Light rain could show up around 4:00 p.m. Friday and linger through early Saturday morning. This system is expected to be light and rainfall totals will likely stay between 0.10'' and 0.25''. Weather models are showing that the rain system should clear out of San Luis Obispo County by early afternoon Saturday, but lingering showers could remain over the mountains and foothills in Santa Barbara County through the late afternoon.

By Sunday, the system will completely exit the area and temperatures will be right around the mid to upper 60s with mostly clear skies.
