The two-day storm that swept through the Central Coast on Monday and Tuesday could be the final rainfall of the month.

Rocky Butte received the most rain at 1.44 inches, followed by Lopez Lake Recreation Area, which received just over an inch of rain. Los Osos received the least with only 0.24 of an inch.

The damp and chilly weather will give way to weekend temperatures that are expected to be substantially warmer. In the North County, temperatures will likely reach the 80s and possibly low 90s; the inland valleys’ temperatures will hover in the mid-80s; and the beaches could warm to the 70s, according to forecasts.

Rain will not likely return to the Central Coast until the first week of May, according to forecasts.
