An upper level low that has been bringing rain, clouds and cooler temperatures is still having its impacts on the Central Coast.

Throughout the morning, skies will be mostly cloudy and there's about a 50% chance of rain. Most weather projections are showing a slight decrease in rainfall potential by the afternoon before more rain is expected over the interior valleys and mountains by Wednesday night.

A winter weather advisory will remain in place over the mountains and foothills in Santa Barbara County through Friday at 5:00 a.m. During this time, there could be an additional inch of snow and roads will be slick, so drivers should use caution while driving in the area.

Daytime highs for the area will be cool and trending down by a few degrees, staying close to the low 50s to the low 60s. Winds will be breezy at times, but are not expected to surpass 25 miles per hour.

Looking ahead to the weekend, high pressure will replace the low pressure system which means dry and warmer conditions are on the way.
