Rainfall totals for San Luis Obispo County

Most areas of San Luis Obispo County received between one-quarter and one-half an inch of rain Monday, according to PG&E meteorologist John Lindsey.

Tuesday is expected to be the coldest day of the week as cool, dry air comes down from the north behind Monday’s storm, Lindsey said. The clouds will clear from north to south as the day goes on, with maximum temperatures only expected to reach the low- to mid-60s in most areas.

Night and morning temperatures are expected to get chilly, according to Lindsey, with the North County dropping near freezing during the early morning hours. Gusty Santa Lucia winds should keep the coastal valleys above the freezing point.

Winds could gust up to 45 mph on Thursday, especially along Highway 41 from Morro Bay High School halfway up the grade to Atascadero. Coastal canyons and parts of eastern San Luis Obispo, including Cal Poly, San Luis Obsipo High School and French Medical Center, could also see gusty winds.

Another cold, low-pressure system is expected to arrive Sunday into Monday with widespread showers. Rainfall totals look similar to the storms the two previous weeks.
