Tracking showers and thunderstorms Wednesday


It'll be another cloudy morning along the Central Coast. Clouds will stick around throughout the day as we track the remnants from tropical storm Eugene. Models show some instability throughout the atmosphere and coupled with the increased moisture mean that we could see periods of pop up showers. Rain amounts look very light, there is a pocket of very dry air near the surface that may absorb most of the rain, so it is possible that we will just see virga. Temperatures will be cooler today and it looks as though Wednesday will be one of the coolest days of the week.

The best atmospheric set up for showers to develop will be Thursday morning, with the possibility of heavy rain in some areas. Most models are in pretty good agreement that we will see some rain early on in the morning, then details become more fuzzy by the evening. It will be the coolest day of the week with another few degrees of cooling, temperatures will be around 6 to 12 degrees below normal.

On Friday we begin to dry out, expect another marine layer filled morning and maybe some muggy conditions for the first half of the day but more sunshine, temperatures warming by a few degrees and a more typical August day by the evening. Temperatures continue to rebound throughout the weekend and more sunshine is in the forecast.
