Sunday was quite the dreary day for many parts of the Central Coast, with cloud coverage lingering throughout the day.

We are still tracking leftover moisture from Tropical Storm Genevieve that's making its way into the Central Coast through Monday morning.

This system is bringing chances of isolated thunderstorms and scattered rain showers.

Our Flash Flood Watch for the Cuyama Valley, San Luis Obispo County mountain and interior areas, and the Santa Barbara County mountain areas has now expired, however there is still a chance of dry lightning over coastal areas.

The marine layer is forecast to return later Monday, with areas of night and morning mist and fog in the coastal regions through Friday.

Variable amounts of smoke from the wildfires should continue to reside over the state, however it's looking like it won't be nearly as bad as we saw towards the end of the past week.
