Good Morning Central Coast!
We are continuing to see a bit of fog this morning. Western beaches especially have low visibility, causing potentially tricky road conditions.
The same marine influence and dense fog will be moving in tomorrow morning. Dense fog is expected once again along the coasts and coastal valleys Friday and Saturday morning.

Today highs will have quite a wide spread. Coastal regions will struggle to climb into the mid 60s while interior valleys are making another run at records with highs possibly up into the upper 80s.

Over the next couple of days we will see some lackluster weather. Not a lot will go on with nearly neutral flow and mild conditions but then Sunday evening our rain chances move in potentially bringing some significant rainfall to the Central Coast. That chance lasts into Monday before clearing out quickly.
We are seeing the models gaining consistency between runs, signaling that the odds of us getting that very much needed rain is improving. Current timing shows the band of heavy rain arriving on Sunday evening into Monday morning with lighter rain to follow the front. Clearing with cooler temps for Tuesday and Wednesday.
If this system holds together it will get us some very much needed rain. As far as totals go I think 0.5" on the low end but where topography can make for some enhanced totals up to 1.5" is not out of the question.

Once the system clears more sunshine and cooler temperatures move in.

Have a great Day Central Coast!
