Tranquil Tuesday, Wetter Wednesday

Air Quality (as of 9:00AM)
GOOD for all reporting areas.
Drier weather kicks off the week. Though it will be mostly sunny across the Central Coast, temperatures will continue to be a tad chilly. A weak ridge will build in on Tuesday, slightly warming temperatures before another system moves in late Tuesday night. This will lead us into an active weather pattern through the rest of the week.  

Tuesday: Another tranquil day for the Central Coast with temperatures warming slightly, with 60s along the coast and 70s inland. There will be plenty of sunshine for inland locations, while coastal areas could see a few passing clouds throughout the day.

Overnight: The evening hours will usher in the next significant cold front. Expect to hear some raindrops starting around midnight, with patchy showers continuing up to sunrise. Overnight lows will sit mostly in the 40s. Watch for slick conditions on the roadways early Wednesday morning.

Wednesday: Mostly cloudy and rainy throughout the day. A better chance of rain totals will be along the coast and coastal hills. While inland locations will see light scattered showers. Temperatures will remain cool, with mostly 60s and a few low 70s. Light breezy conditions as the weather system passes.  

Extended: There are some indications that mid. to late week, rain will be possible again as back to back weather systems move through. Most of the week will be cloudy and damp. As we head into the weekend there's a potentially stronger system that could bring us the chance of rain (off and on) for a few days. We'll continue to track those conditions as the week progresses.

This week's normal temperatures:

LOW: 51ºF
HIGH: 71ºF
LOW: 47ºF
HIGH: 80ºF
