One of the harder forecasts in a while to pin down the details thanks to very weak dynamics and very undecided help from the computer models, regardless there are a few things fairly easy to figure out. There is plenty of moisture supply just not a great trigger to squeeze it out of the atmosphere. Offshore has broken down and with southerly flow clouds will continue to dominate the area through Thursday and Friday. The lowest layers of the atmosphere had been dry but are starting to get moist, which is allowing some very light showers to reach the ground.
Continues light scattered showers are in the forecast through Friday. However timing them will be hard. The low pressure off the coast which is pumping all this moisture in will drift into southern Arizona later Friday into Saturday. As it crosses into California the Southcoast could get slightly higher rainfall as a result early Friday.
As for the weekend, I see skies clearing partially. There is another system on the way for Sunday but looks to be rather dry. It'll be cool and breezy however and things will feel more like January than they did earlier this week when we got some upper 70s and a few scattered low 80s out.
Highs by Sunday and Monday will only be in the upper 50s and lower 60s.
