Highs are warming a tad Monday, bringing the region about 4 to 8 degrees below normal. Highs will be in the 50s to mid 60s. Lows will be in the 40s to 50s.
The rain is ending as the upper low moves to the east. Our region will be under dry and fast zonal flow, consequently.
However, the low will drop south into the region Monday night into Tuesday morning, bringing a 10 to 30 percent chance of rain to southwest California. San Luis Obispo County has the best chance and could see up to a quarter inch of rain. Snowfall may fall at 5,000 feet.
Wednesday may warm slightly with a small ridge over California. Skies will clear nicely. More mid-level clouds come back to the region Thursday under a small trough.
Another small trough Friday brings a 10 to 20 percent chance of rain to SLO and Santa Barbara Counties Friday. Even if no rain, cloud cover will increase.
