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.
