Rain showers expected to continue in SLO County until Friday

newsroom@thetribunenews.comJanuary 24, 2013 

Rain showers will continue throughout San Luis Obispo County on Thursday and linger into Friday, said local PG&E meteorologist John Lindsey.

A large plume of subtropical moisture is overhead and will continue to sprinkle rain across the region, Lindsey said. Due to its origin in the subtropic region of the Pacific Ocean, it packs mild temperatures. The snow level is above 7,000 feet. Highs across SLO County Thursday will be in the mid-60s.

Showers should end by Friday afternoon, giving way to partly cloudy skies and cooler temperatures through Tuesday, Lindsey said.

After that, another high-pressure system will be positioned off the California coast, leading to another extended period of dry, sunny weather, Lindsey said.
