The High Wind Warning remains in effect until 10:00am Thursday morning for the Central Coast.
The highest winds may not arrive until late Wednesday night and are forecast to blow through Thursday morning. The latest projections show south winds steady at 30-40 mph with gusts 60-70 mph. The strongest gusts will be on exposed beaches and headlands. Localized power outages and downed trees are possible. And, travel may be difficult, especially for high profile vehicles like RVs and trucks.
There is also a chance for thunderstorms as a cold front passes over our area just ahead of the high winds.
Rainfall predictions of an additional 1 to 2 inches in Central Coast communities, and up to 4-6 inches in the Coast Range, are not out of the question with this storm.
We continue to monitor the situation and will post updates as necessary.
