Good morning Central Coast and happy Friday!
Rain has been moving through the region in the overnight hours and will continue into the morning Friday.

Rain continued last night and will even more this morning as the last of the system moves through. This will be felt as a series of bands of rain that will march through the region.

A band of rain will cross the region in the mid morning hours as it marches south east.

Temperatures today will be on the cooler side with gusts. You are going to want an extra layer as you head out the door today.

The chance for scattered showers will remain into the afternoon hours holding on into the evening in the interior valleys. What this will look like as you plan your day is that most of the time clear and dry conditions will persist but there is a chance of quick moving showers all day.
These continued showers will bring the chance for a few more hundredths of an inch of rain. The vast majority of accumulations are already behind us from this system. As soon as the rain stops we will bring you official rain totals.
Aside from continued showers winds will play a factor today. Sustained winds 20-35mph are possible with gusts u to 55mph possible in passes canyons and at high elevation peaks. That risk has prompted a high wind advisory to be issued for portions of Santa Barbara county including the high elevation interiors and south coast. That advisory will stick around until tomorrow morning.
There is also a high surf advisory in effect for all of the Central Coast's beaches lasting into Saturday night. Waves cresting 5-10 ft are expected alongside a rip current risk.

After this storm system models are not showing anything else through the mid range forecast (16 days). Above normal temperatures are expected through the extended forecast as well.
Have a great Friday and weekend ahead Central Coast!
