Arroyo Grande recorded 0.28 inches, Atascadero 0.25, Cal Poly and Cambria 0.44, Morro Bay 0.35, Nipomo 0.68 and Paso Robles 0.18.

Looking ahead, the rest of the week is expected to be dry, with temperatures climbing into the mid-70s Wednesday through Friday. As of Tuesday morning, the forecast models suggest dry weather heading into the weekend, but an expected redeveloping of the marine layer Friday night into Saturday means details aren’t clear.
