More clouds with some rain showers mid-week

by Dave Hovde, KSBY Meteorologist

Today’s offshore winds will produce mild temps after a cool start, especially inland.

Coastal clouds will return Tuesday with drizzle possible, but a cold front with a better chance of real rain is on Wednesday. The showers could continue overnight into early Thursday morning and amounts look to stay under .20”

The balance of the week looks breezy and cooler with partly cloudy skies and weekend conditions could get even windier.

One more day for sunshine, then changes on the way

By RaeAnn Christensen, KSBY Forecaster

Dry and windy conditions will continue into Monday for the Central Coast with warmer temperatures. We will then see changes with cooler temperatures and a slight chance for rain late Tuesday evening into Wednesday. This first storm system won’t make it far enough north to bring any precipitation to the Santa Barbara area. But all areas will see a slight chance of rain on Friday.

Some lingering clouds Friday

by Dave Hovde, KSBY Meteorologist

Early Thursday a cold front pushed through the Central Coast producing generally light rain, and many in the interior saw little to no rain at all.

The front is gone but some lingering instability will still produce partly to mostly cloudy skies on Friday, winds will also pick up out of the NW and 15-25mph and some gusts of 30mph are possible.

A high surf advisory is in place until 3am Saturday for some break that’ll be 9-11ft with local sets to 13ft.

Saturday and Sunday temps look mild with the sun coming back out in the 70s.

The next weather-maker will likely be Tuesday PM into Wednesday, but the question is the track and intensity. Models are showing both the potiential for the system to produce up to .50″ however others show minimal impact with the storm track moving a little north. At this point we’ll take a mid-point solution and call for lighter rains but please check back for updates.

There is another opportunity to pick up rain around next week, but the same intensity and timing questions remain as to the specifics on that.
