Final Round

The next storm system will make its approach on the Central Coast Friday. Ahead of it, moist southerly flow will likely keep the coastal mountains wet on Thursday while most other areas dry out. Friday’s system will be accompanied by a strong cold front that will bring brief heavy rain and gusty winds Friday evening. Showers will linger behind the system on Saturday with dryer weather expected out of the weekend. Another weather system will approach mid-week next week, but at the moment it doesn’t look to have too much of an impact on our area.


Overnight:
 Partly cloudy with showers tapering off. Patchy dense fog for valley bottoms. Some drizzle possible on south-facing coastal slopes. Can’t rule out a few sprinkles elsewhere. Lows in the 40s to low 50s.
 
Thursday: Partly cloudy with a few sprinkles possible. Highs in the upper 50s to mid 60s.

Friday: Increasing clouds and southerly winds. A cold front will bring moderate to briefly heavy rain in the evening along with gusty winds. Highs mainly in the low 60s.

Extended: Showers linger into Saturday before dryer weather Sunday and out of the weekend. Temperatures will remain seasonable.


The outlook from the Climate Prediction Center for December 12th - 18th calls for the likelihood of ABOVE normal temperatures and BELOW normal precipitation.
