Compared with the rain that has pummeled the Central Coast over the past few months, the brief return that the wet weather made from Friday night into Saturday brought a gentle sprinkling.

Rocky Butte received the most rain, at 1.12 inches, according to PG&E meteorologist John Lindsey. Morro Bay reported 0.24 inches, Shell Beach saw 0.26 inches and Oceano had 0.32 inches of rain. A weak cold front is predicted to move through the area Sunday night into Monday morning, which could bring a few light showers and, on Monday afternoon, gale-force winds that could blow up to 46 miles per hour.

Warmer and drier weather is forecast to come to the Central Coast by Tuesday, and gale-force winds are expected to return Thursday afternoon into Friday, Lindsey said. The next chance for rain is forecast to be April 7.
