Big weather changes this week, heavy rain and winds to return

Big changes are coming mid-week to the Central Coast, rain looks to return and the potential for heavy rain is there.

FIrst we get through a quiet period that lasts through Tuesday with lighter SW winds and some areas of night and morning clouds, fog and even spotty marine drizze. Skies will clear again Tuesday with generally mild temps in the 60s and 70s.

A cold front arrives on the Central Coast later Wednesday for our first chance of rain. It'll also have stronger SE winds associated with it up to 30mph. .25-1.0" of rain from this first system.

There will be a lull between systems Thursday but scattered showers are possible.

Friday's system looks really strong, for one it has the potential to produce very high winds in the 50-60mph neighborhood for the coast. Rain will also be heavy with 1-3" potential and some SW facing slopes could see more.

The both winds and rain are concerns but winds like this are rare enough to be a real concern for power outages since the chances of falling trees and limbs is rather high.

Rain will taper on Saturday but some showers into Saturday evening are possible, Sunday looks dry until late then another disturbance could bring a little more rain.

So, if you add up all the rain 1-4" of rain is possible from Wednesday through Sunday.

After all this activity there should be a quiet period setting up for the balance of next week.
