Rain, Wind, and Snow

A strong cold front will bring rain, wind and much cooler temperatures to the Central Coast this week. Mountain snow is also likely around the state, so adjust travel plans accordingly.

Monday: A few clouds throughout the day, with gusty conditions this afternoon. Highs will be in the 50s-60s near the coast today with 60s inland.

Overnight: Some patchy fog possible, with partly cloudy skies. Overnight lows will be in the 40s on the coast and 30s-40s inland.

Tuesday: Increasing clouds throughout the day, with rain approaching late. Light rain will start in the evening, with moderate to heavy rain pushing in late. There is a chance for thunderstorms to develop across the Central Coast, and even snow possible in the higher mountain peaks. Highs will be in the 50s-60s. Gusty at times.

**HIGH SURF ADVISORY**

  • The National Weather Service has issued a High Surf Advisory, which is in effect from 7 PM Tuesday to 3 PM Wednesday.
  • -Northwest swells 17 to 20 feet at 15 to 16 second periods. Breakers of 22 to 27 feet possible.
  • -Large breaking waves along the coast will lead to increased wave run-up on beaches with waves topping and washing over large rocks and jetties. Use extra caution near the surf zone as these large waves will be capable of sweeping people into the frigid and turbulent ocean water. Coldwater shock may cause cardiac arrest, and it also can cause an involuntary gasp reflex causing drowning, even for a good swimmer. The surf zone will be dangerous due to strong currents and powerful breaking waves.


Extended: Scattered rain and thunderstorm chances will continue through Thanksgiving and even Friday. Temperatures will also take a hit with most spots only in the 50s. Another rain system by the impact the Central Coast next weekend, so stay tuned.

The outlook from the Climate Prediction Center for November 30th - December 6th calls for the likelihood of BELOW normal temperatures and near normal precipitation.
