A blustery, rainy day at the Cayucos Pier
Friday’s dreary afternoon brought rain to San Luis Obispo County, with precipitation continuing overnight into early Saturday morning.
The county saw a wide range of rainfall totals. Rocky Butte received 5.56 inches of rain between 5 a.m. Friday and 5 a.m. Saturday, according to data from PG&E meteorologist John Lindsey. Mission Prep in San Luis Obispo received 1.42 inches of rain during that same time period, Morro Bay received 0.10 of an inch and Oceano received 0.12 of an inch.
Meanwhile, reservoirs in the county remained above 60 percent capacity, though the latest reports don’t reflect all rainfall from Friday’s storm.
Santa Margarita Lake was at more than 100 percent capacity as of Friday, according to totals kept by the San Luis Obispo County Public Works Department. Officials have speculated that it will remain at or near capacity until at least mid-spring.
The water levels at Lopez Lake were updated on Saturday, April 8, 2017. The capacity levels of Lake Nacimiento, Lake San Antonio and Santa Margarita Lake were updated Friday, April 7, 2017, while the capacity level of Whale Rock Reservoir was last updated Wednesday, April 5, 2017.
