It will be a rainy start to Wednesday as a cold front moves over the Central Coast throughout the morning.

As of 4:30 a.m. scattered shower activity was reported over San Luis Obispo County and Cambria had received nearly 0.20'' while Templeton had received under 0.10''. These rainfall totals will continue to increase throughout the morning and in some cases could reach 0.50''.

Most activity is expected to last until about 6:30 a.m. before the system starts to break up and showers will be much lighter and more scattered.

As for daytime highs, temperatures will be a few degrees cooler compared to Tuesday's forecast. Expect most valley locations to range from the low to mid-60s and for beaches to be even cooler and from the upper 50s to low 60s.

Looking ahead to the weekend, gusty northerly winds are expected Friday and Saturday before a trough moves over the area Saturday night, which will bring more cool air.
