Though Sunday’s storm was anticipated to be the biggest storm of the season — and had the high winds to match — it fell a little short in terms of rain, according to PG&E meteorologist John Lindsey.

The storms, which continued into Monday, caused power outages and road closures. From Sunday into Monday afternoon, rainfall totals throughout the county ranged from 0.47 inches to 5 inches. Here’s a look at totals from locations around San Luis Obispo County:
