A Dry But Cool Weekend

Air Quality (as of 3PM):
Good  for all reporting stations.


Weather Story:  The Central Coast saw more sunshine today with a few high passing clouds. Temperatures were seasonable and conditions were breezy at times. Clouds will increase Friday evening as a system moves into the Central Coast. Light rain is expected with the fast moving system late Friday night into early Saturday morning. No major rainfall totals expected. As the system passes areas will see breezy, and at times gusty conditions. The winds will stick around most of the weekend. Behind the passing cold front is cooler air, and temperatures will reflect that air mass throughout the weekend?


Friday: Morning will be damp, possible fog inland locations. Partly cloud skies in the morning but clearing throughout the day. The afternoon will be mostly sunny. Conditions will be dry and breezy with gusts at times. Temperatures along the coast will be in the upper 50s, inland locations will be in the low to mid 60s.    

Overnight: Partly cloudy skies. Temperatures inland will be in the upper 30s and low 40s. Along the coast mid 40s.

Extended: Sunday the Central Coast will see mostly sunny skies, dry conditions, but it will remain breezy and cool. Another little system pushes through Monday bringing the chance of light scattered rain showers. Tuesday and Wednesday a stronger system looks to bring better rain chances, with higher precipitation totals. The ridge builds back in and we could see a warm up late next week.
