Spring is bringing some much-needed showers to parched California.

San Luis Obispo County could see 0.75 to 2.25 inches of rain over the next 10 days, according to PG&E meteorologist John Lindsey, while areas north of Sonoma County are expected to receive 8 to 10 inches of rain in the same period.

Partly cloudy and mild temperatures will continue through Friday before increasing winds, clouds and rain move into San Luis Obispo County on Saturday evening, Lindsey said. Total rainfall amounts with the system are expected to range between 0.15 and 0.40 inches.

Dry weather and mild temperatures are expected to return Sunday before a vigorous low-pressure system with 32 to 46 mph winds and moderate to heavy rain moves in Monday afternoon and night, Lindsey said. Rain totals could range between 0.75 and 1.25 inches. Heavy snow is expected in the Sierras on Monday, with snow levels down to 3,000 feet.

More rain could move across the Central Coast on Thursday and Friday of next week, Lindsey said.
