An upper-level low that was off the coast of Northern California is now west of Point Conception. What this means is most rainfall that is happening is off the coast. There's still a 20% chance of rain through the morning commute, but it's likely that commuters will mostly have mid to high-level clouds.

By the afternoon, expect daytime highs in the 60s for much of the areas in San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara Counties. A slight chance of rain is possible for areas across the western portions of San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara Counties, but again, it's likely that Tuesday will be mostly dry.
Southerly winds will be gentle to moderate Tuesday, ranging from 10-20 miles per hour through the afternoon.

Looking ahead to Wednesday, another round of rain is expected after midnight for the Central Coast. The bulk of this system will be from the early morning hours Wednesday through the afternoon. It's still likely that rainfall totals will stay between 0.75'' and 1.5'', but the mountains and foothills could get closer to 3''.

Another break from the rain is in the forecast for Thursday, followed by more rain chances Friday evening through Saturday morning.
