The front was moving down the coast Tuesday morning. The system will likely move through by late Tuesday morning, and the afternoon and evening hours should be drier.
“We could also see some lingering showers, because there is another rain band that looks like it’s sort of falling apart as it makes its way into the Central Coast, but as it moves down the coast, this could bring us more of those scattered showers once the main event pushes through,” CBS2 Meteorologist Amber Lee reports.
The system expected bring about one-tenth of an inch of rain. A second storm system will move through on Thursday that is expected to be significantly colder.MORE NEWS: High-Powered Winds Whip Through Southland, Bringing Damage To Houses, Trees
