An area of low pressure off the West Coast will drop into southern CA between now and Sunday, as it passes the Central Coast late overnight Friday into Saturday showers are likely but amounts are not expected to be great because the track will likely be a glancing blow and the system is not supplied with much moisture.
My forecast is from .10-.30" with some locations getting as much as .50, but there is some track uncertainty. If the low were to track 20 or 30 miles further west the totals could be very low and perhaps none at all for locations away from the coast.
Snow levels will be somewhat low, 3500ft as the system departs which could put a few inches of snow in the SB County Mountains but no advisories are posted as of now.
I don't think much is left of the storm on Sunday, perhaps the slight chance of a shower early on the SB Southcoast otherwise we'll start a run of days with partly cloudy conditions. There are two minor systems, one passes Tuesday but this is a new wrinkle and could give us a chance of showers but I kept it out for now. Another opportunity Thursday I do have in the forecast but recent model runs are showing as weaker than originally imagined.
As for temperatures, Friday 50s and lower 60s. Saturday generally 50s due to the showers and only limited sun. Sunday 50s and 60s return with generally low 60s for highs into the middle of next week.
