Just posted to twitter by NWS: ”Currently tracking some showers in SLO county that are approaching Monterey county. These cells have produced some lightning near Shandon. Expect the potential for thunderstorms for southern Monterey and southern San Benito counties through the evening. #CAwx”
I suspect, based on other predictions I have read that the potential for thunderstorms with be on the SE portion of MoCo, not the coast.
