Sunday’s rain has affected some local roads, causing flooding and some closures.

Turri Road in Los Osos is closed because of flooding, according to the California Highway Patrol.

There is no word on when road that connects South Bay Boulevard to Los Osos Valley Road will reopen.

Avila Beach Drive is closed between Ontario Road and San Luis Bay Drive.

Bonita School Road, connecting Division Street in Nipomo to Main Street west of Santa Maria, is also reported closed.

Along Highway 46 in Whitley Gardens east of Paso Robles, a mudslide in the eastbound lanes has backed up traffic, including westbound traffic to the Y interchange with Highway 41.

Meanwhile, southbound Highway 1 at San Jacinto Road in Morro Bay is expected to reopen by 4:30 p.m.

In Cayucos, a citizen cleared debris from a drain along Ash Avenue at Cayucos Drive, according to the CHP.

Water is raining there now, easing flooding that had closed the street about 2:30 p.m., the CHP said.

Highway 33 has been closed south from Highway 166, and Interstate 5 is closed through the Grapevine because of snow.

That could send some Southern California-bound traffic through the Central Coast through Highways 41 and 46 to Highway 101.
