SLO County gets some much-needed rain

newsroom@thetribunenews.comFebruary 2, 2014 

It wasn’t much, but San Luis Obispo County saw some much-needed rain Sunday, with some spots getting nearly an inch. 

Sunday’s rainfall is a far cry from the torrential amount needed to make up for this year’s unusually dry year.

Since July 1, the start of the rain year, only 0.53 inches of rain had been recorded at the Diablo Canyon Ocean Lab, excluding Sunday’s rainfall. The normal average for this time of year is 11.5 inches.

The rain is expected to clear up Monday, and conditions will remain clear into Thursday, when a cold front may bring some scattered rainfall, according to PG&E forecasts.

Otherwise, inland temperatures will be in the high 50s and low 60s, while coastal temperatures will stay in the low 60s.
