Commuters can expect a cloudy drive Monday morning, which will be a trend the Central Coast continues to see through mid-week as rain makes its way back into the forecast Tuesday night.

Daytime highs will be close to average, with most coastal valley areas staying right around the low to upper 60s, while inland valleys and beaches could taper off to the upper 50s into the afternoon.

The southwesterly flow will keep skies mostly cloudy Monday and rain chances are looking slightly bleak for the Central Coast. Right now, there's a 20% chance of showers Tuesday night through Wednesday morning, but that chance is mainly over northern San Luis Obispo County and rainfall totals will likely stay under .25''.

The upcoming weekend will mark somewhat of a warming trend as daytime highs are expected to inch back to the upper 60s and low 70s across the Central Coast. Until then, expect temperatures to linger in the 50s and 60s through mid-week.
