Periods of wet weather ahead

A series of storm systems will likely bring wet weather at times through the Holiday weekend. The first system Friday night into Saturday bringing will bring gusty south to southwest winds and rainfall amounts generally between one quarter and one inch. The foothills of northwestern San Luis Obispo County could even see more. The cold front is expected to weaken as it moves south of Point Conception with light rain expected to be less than a quarter of an inch.

Late Saturday we should see some clearing, however another system is on the way for the central coast on Sunday night into early Monday. This will be a fairly fast moving system. Rainfall estimates with this second system are expected to range between one third and one inch for much of the area with the higher amounts once again focused across San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties. Locally higher rainfall totals between one and two inches will be possible across south and southwest facing slopes of San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties.

Dry conditions are forecast for Christmas eve night and Christmas day however a third system will bring another chance of rain to the area late Wednesday into early Thursday.
