DISCUSSION:

WITH A STALLED OUT FRONT ON THE CENTRAL COAST...PERIODS OF STEADY
LIGHT RAIN WILL CONTINUE TO IMPACT SOME AREAS NORTH OF POINT
CONCEPTION THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT. THE BEST CHANCES OF RAIN ON THE
CENTRAL COAST WILL BE THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING. ANOTHER ROUND OF
LIGHT RAIN IS POSSIBLE SATURDAY NIGHT AS THE FRONT FINALLY PUSHES
SOUTHWARD THROUGH THE REGION. THERE WILL BE A SLIGHT CHANCE OF LIGHT
RAIN FOR AREAS SOUTH OF POINT CONCEPTION TONIGHT THROUGH THIS
MORNING...THAN AGAIN SATURDAY NIGHT INTO SUNDAY MORNING.

ADDITIONAL RAINFALL AMOUNTS OF 0.50 TO 1.00" ARE POSSIBLE ALONG THE
NORTHERN COASTAL AREAS AND FOOTHILLS OF SAN LUIS OBISPO COUNTY
THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT...WITH 0.10-0.50" FOR OTHER AREAS ON THE
CENTRAL COAST. RAINFALL TOTALS FOR ALL AREAS SOUTH OF POINT
CONCEPTION WILL LIKELY BE 0.00-0.10".

ALTHOUGH RAINFALL TOTALS IN NORTHWEST SAN LUIS OBISPO COUNTY COULD BE
IMPRESSIVE DUE TO THE LONG DURATION OF THIS EVENT...RAINFALL RATES
SHOULD STAY WELL BELOW 0.25 IN/HR. THUNDERSTORMS AND SNOW WILL NOT
BE AN ISSUE.

DRY WEATHER IS EXPECTED MONDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY NEXT WEEK. A FAST-
MOVING UPPER-LEVEL TROUGH COULD BRING MORE RAIN TO THE REGION LATE
NEXT WEEK.
