A pair of storms will bring a big time shift to this dry weather pattern through the upcoming weekend. Storm #1 will increase the showers through this evening, with steady rain expected overnight tonight. Bands of heavy rain will be embedded in this cold front, and a slight chance for thunderstorms is possible as well. Gusty south/southwest winds will blow across the forecast tonight, with a wind advisory now in effect for the interior valleys and mountains.
Storm system #1 will wind down early Thursday as morning showers give way to peeks of afternoon sunshine. Daytime highs on Thursday will warm into the 60s in most areas, with coastal San Luis Obispo County likely seeing some cooler upper 50s.
Storm system #2 will increase the clouds by late Thursday night and rain is expected to pick up as we head into the overnight.
Friday will be a wet and windy day up and down the coast as the storm system slams into the coast. This storm is packing quite a punch and will bring between 1" to 3" to coasts/valleys, but as much as 3" to 6" of additional rainfall in the mountains/foothills.
