Light but steady rain showers that started Tuesday afternoon dropped between one-quarter and three-quarters of an inch of rain over most areas of San Luis Obispo County by Wednesday morning.
Unlike storms that originate in the Gulf of Alaska and can produce a great variant of rainfall totals throughout the county, this system produced fairly uniform results in all areas, according to John Lindsey, meteorologist at Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant.
Scattered rain showers with periods of clearing are expected through Wednesday, according to Lindsey.
The periods of sunlight could lead to an unstable atmosphere in the afternoon and evening hours, which gives the chance for thunderstorms, Lindsey said.
The rain showers should stop by Wednesday night.
Thursday is expected to be partly cloudy and dry in San Luis Obispo County. Friday should be sunny and warmer.
The weekend is forecast to be sunny and warm with temperatures at or slightly above normal, which means the high 70s to mid 80s, Lindsey said.
