Rain systems leave the Central Coast lacking

After a few showers and sprinkles on Thursday, Friday looks to be a generally decent day aside from some coastal clouds at beach communities.

Another glancing blow from a rain system this weekend. Saturday clouds increase with showers in the later PM, but much of the day actually stays dry.

Sunday showers look likely as the low pressure system pushes through CA to our north. The issue is how much rain, frankly it doesn't look impressive. .01-.30" is the forecast at this point, models keep backing away from the system but there is enough instability for a slight chance of thunderstorms Sunday afternoon so having something a little more than a quarter on the high side looks like a good inclusion.

It is a fairly warm system, so snow levels likely around 6000ft which means it is not a local concern, but could mean badly needed precip for the Sierra.

Then we get dry again though the first 2/3rds of next week with another system as early as Thursday or Friday. We are 6-8" of rain behind for the 2013 year and even further for the 2012-2013 season. Doesn't appear that there is any scenario that would catch us up, but at this point a late season rain could at least delay fire weather concerns.
