Rain is expected and thunderstorms are possible early this week across San Luis Obispo County.
Scattered rain showers are expected today and tomorrow throughout the county, as a low-pressure system about 100 miles northwest of San Luis Obispo moves southward and slowly down the California coast over the next 36 hours, drawing moisture from the south, according to a recent news release by PG&E meteorologist John Lindsey.
This low-pressure system will also create a favorable environment for thunderstorm development today into Tuesday across much of the Central Coast. The biggest threat from these storms is dry lightning; localized gusty outflow winds; and the potential for new fire starts, because surface fuels remain extremely dry.
After the system exits Wednesday, temperatures will rise through the week and weekend.
