‘Unsettled Weather,’ Light Rain in Forecast

Some unsettled weather is in the forecast for the Central Coast through week's end, with a chance of sprinkles or light rain, and even thunderstorms.

A weak cold front was moving through the region Wednesday morning, bringing light rainfall to parts of Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties, according to the National Weather Service.

Another cold front — an upper-level low — was expected to pass through the area Thursday, with more rain and the possibility of thunderstorms, forecasters said.

The chance of rain in Santa Barbara was pegged at 30 percent Wednesday, and 20 percent overnight and into Thursday.

Santa Maria was showing an 80-percent chance of rain Wednesday, dropping to 20 percent overnight and into Thursday.

Overall rainfall should be relatively light, with most areas receiving less than a half inch, the weather service said.

Daytime highs are expected in the low 60s, with overnight lows in the upper 40s.

Sunny skies and gradually warming temperatures are expected beginning Friday.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
