7 am – from NOAA – Particularly applicable to the South Coast of Big Sur’s higher elevations.
“More interesting is the influx of monsoonal moisture into the southern third of our district from the desert southwest, as can be seen on satellite water vapor imagery. Local radars are showing fast-moving widely-scattered showers moving from east to west across northern San Luis Obispo county, and one cell with a 50 dBZ core now quickly moving across extreme southern Monterey county. No nearby lightning detected as of now, but increased chances of this are expected later today as the moisture continues to filter northward into more of our CWA. The possibility for high-based thunderstorm activity will persist into Friday.”
