The next couple of days will bring a mix of rain, chance of thunderstorms, cooler temperatures and clear skies. The reason for most of this activity will be an upper level low. For the most part, this low will not disrupt much of the forecast for the Central Coast throughout the morning Tuesday, but by the afternoon, it could bring a chance of rain to the area.

Through most of the morning and early afternoon, the Central Coast will have partly cloudy skies and by the mid-afternoon and through Tuesday night, rain will likely return and there will be a chance of thunderstorms as well. These conditions will continue through the overnight hours and into Wednesday morning, resulting in widespread rainfall for the Central Coast.

There's about a 40% chance for rain showers on Thursday, but the low pressure system behind the rain will be bumped out by a high pressure system that will bring mostly clear skies and warmer temperatures by the end of the week.

For Tuesday, daytime highs will still be on the cooler side, ranging from the upper 50s to the mid-60s. Throughout the morning, winds will be mild and by the afternoon, the winds will shift out of the northwest with wind gusts generally between 15-20 miles per hour.
