Happy Tuesday Morning Central Coast!
We saw some very much needed rain yesterday, unfortunately it will not be enough to break out of our severe drought conditions.
As far as rain totals go here is what we saw across portions of the Central Coast. The highest totals were seen on south facing slopes and the south coast.

Here are few more rain totals!

For Tuesday morning, lingering moisture from our rainstorm Monday is bringing a bit of low lying clouds and patchy fog to the Central Coast. This is dropping visibility as you head out the door this morning.

For today temperatures will still be 5-10 degrees below normal.

After all of yesterdays excitement with our rain storm this week will be a bit more mild and dare I say it...boring. Fog and low cloud are possible in the mornings both Wednesday and Thursday but for Friday into the weekend warmer temperatures and sunny skies move in.

Have a great day Central Coast!
