Storm forecast for Sunday as rain dancers prance in Templeton

  • The Central Coast Center for Spiritual Living headed a rain dance spiritual ceremony Saturday in Templeton Park. The Rev. LaVonne Rae Andrews/Welsh and Rev. Don Welsh headed the dance accompanied by drum beating that Andrews-Welch described as "the heart beat of Mother Earth." She danced with feathers inside the circle of rain dancers.

A storm is expected to bring rain to the Central Coast by 4 p.m. Sunday and continue through the night, said PG&E meteorologist John Lindsey.

Up to three-quarters of an inch is expected along the coast and one-quarter of an inch inland. Snow levels are expected to drop to 3,500 feet, he said.

The rain is forecast for the day after the Central Coast Center for Spiritual Living held a rain dance in Templeton Park. In the hope that some drumming and high stepping might persuade Mother Nature to end California’s record-breaking drought, the Rev. LaVonne Rae Andrews/Welsh organized the dance on Saturday.
