Seemingly never ending gusts will give way to a rain chance this weekend

Posted at 5:53 AM, Apr 14, 2022

Good morning Central Coast and happy Thursday!
Conditions today will be very similar to the past few days as we "rinse and repeat" today's forecast.

Today's temperatures are still 3-5 degrees below normal for this time of year but slightly warmer than temperatures were Wednesday. Thankfully we will see mostly clear and sunny skies today to make for a great although chilly day.

It has been a lot of very similar conditions the past few days but as we get closer to the weekend more marine influence will move in as a precursor to a rain chance Saturday morning. The chance will bring less than a tenth inch of rain before clearing out in time for Sunday.

Lets chat about rain chances...
Before we see any rain we need to break this dry and windy pattern. That will happen with a cold front that will plunge south onto the Central Coast late Thursday into Friday morning. This will bring more clouds and marine influence to "prep" our atmosphere to get as much rain as possible.
Friday will be mild with some clouds, as a secondary front moves in Friday night we will see some destabilization enough to squeeze some rain out of the passing front.
The main rain chance will be Saturday morning, clearing by the afternoon. Just a few hundredths of an inch of rain are possible, mainly in northern San Luis Obispo County.

A high pressure will move in and make for a sunny Easter and a seasonal week ahead.
Have great day Central Coast!
