The Central Coast received light rainfall in the overnight hours as a low pressure system moved over the area. Many cities in San Luis Obispo County struggled to get past 0.10'', while some of the south coast regions saw 0.20.''

The morning commute will be chilly with temperatures in the 30s and 40s through the 8 o'clock hour. Monday is shaping up to be mostly clear with near-seasonal temperatures. The inland and coastal valleys will be right around the mid to upper 60s, while much of the beaches will be closer to the low to mid-60s range Monday.

Offshore flow will be a dominating factor in the forecast as wind gusts become breezy from the morning through early evening with the potential for wind gusts to reach 30 miles per hour. By Tuesday, the offshore winds will gradually warm up some of the region, bringing the coastal and inland valley communities back into the 70s through Wednesday. The next opportunity for rain could be as early as Friday, with rain chances increasing through Saturday.
