Good morning, Central Coast and happy Tuesday!

As many people head back to work after the holiday weekend there is more cloud cover expected as much of that May Grey transitions to June Gloom.

The fog is a little more patchy than in previous days but even with less cloud cover we will see cooler temps across the region.

Our gloomy conditions today may hold something a little more sinister for the interior valleys.

A potential area for thunderstorms will form in NE Santa Barbara County. This afternoon storms may move in and bring significant rain *potential* for the Cuyama Valley.

Wherever these storms form could see up to 0.75" rain but that will be extremely localized. I think most locations that see any rain will see under 0.25".

On Wednesday a cold front arrives in our region keeping temps cooler than average. Wednesday also looks to be the cloudiest day.

This also brings another chance of drizzle in the morning hours.

We have a little bit of a break from the May Grey and June Gloom for this weekend as highs in the interior valleys get back up to the upper 80s (for a little while at least). Cooler temps return next week.

Have a great day Central Coast!
