Expect another round of dense fog and a thick marine layer early on Tuesday morning. The marine layer and clouds will be stubborn to clear in some areas as strong onshore flow is expected. Other than clouds, the main topic of the day will be cooler temperatures and rain chances. Temperatures cool off a few degrees and will actually be below average, reaching into the middle to upper 60s and lower 70s near the coast. Tropical storm Eugene will track north and will weaken in intensity but brings plenty of mid level moisture into the area. This moisture along with the instability of the atmosphere could produce pop up showers late in the evening or overnight. Models show minimal rain, in the hundredths of inches.
Rain chances increase Wednesday. Models show the most likely rain chances over higher terrain but we could see some showers near the beaches and in the valleys as well. Rain amounts look tricky as of now and some areas could receive moderate rainfall at times but I expect mostly light rain through the region.
We could see the potential for showers to linger into Thursday morning but I expect under a 10% chance for the Central Coast. Temperatures for the day will be similar to Wednesday if not a degree or two warmer. More sunshine and drier conditions are expected through the weekend.
