Another rain system is on the way. Some cloud cover will hang over the Central Coast throughout most of the morning ahead of another storm that will bring rain activity Friday afternoon through Saturday.

There will still be continued rainfall activity on Saturday but conditions will start to clear up heading into the afternoon hours. Expect more rain by the end of the weekend, which will continue through the end of next week. Weather models are indicating that by the end of next week, the Central Coast could see up to 7” of rain.
