Synopsis
Cold temperatures are once again expected into this morning, especially across the interior portions of the North Bay and East Bay. Rain will continue through the afternoon today with highest rainfall amounts over the Santa Lucias expected. Another round of rain expected tonight into Sunday. Dry and cold weather early next week with potential for lingering rain showers.

As of 02:28pm PST Saturday...As expected, the Big Sur coast has been seeing persistent rainfall through the morning with more to come this afternoon. So far, the highest observed total rainfall from this plume of moisture is 3.58 inches on the very southern edge of the Big Sur Coast.

This southern plume will continue to offer steady rain chances for Monterey Co will into the night with more scattered chances entering the Bay Area through the evening. The highest rain rate will remain focused on the Big Sur Coast, but again forecasted rates look to stay below debris flow thresholds for the Monterey Co burn scars.

As the southern plume of moisture cuts off its feed and moves inland, the next trough from the North begins to affect the North Bay counties late tonight. Recent model updates have been slowing the initial boundary's strength and speed. This reduces rainfall rates, but increases the duration of this passage, meaning rainfall amounts only reduced slightly.

The parent low pressure of this next boundary will also move into the area, offering scattered rain chances lasting into Tuesday morning. Again, rates look mild, but it will be over a fair amount of time. Rain fall totals between the time of writing and Tuesday are mostly between 0.5" to 1" around the Bay Area. While the southern counties of the CWA (County Warning Area) will see much less rainfall after today.

Temperatures are not expected to see much movement until the middle of next week. Daily highs will stay mostly in the 40s and 50s with lows staying in the 30s and 40s. After the mid week, expect lows to fall into the lower 30s for most of the more interior areas, with highs remaining cool.

as of 03:34pm PST Saturday...Moderate to fresh southerly winds across the waters as a stationary front sits across the Central Coast. A cold front will pass through late tonight through Sunday bringing increasing southwesterly winds. A slight chance of thunderstorms north of Point Reyes exists Saturday night through Sunday behind the front. A new Northwest swell will spread through the waters tonight into Sunday creating hazardous seas in the outer waters for smaller vessels.
