Geography and location play a major role in how much rain falls on the Central Coast.

PG&E meteorologist John Lindsey queried nearly 240 weather watchers to compile a definitive end-of-the-season list, ranging from barely 10 inches southeast of Shandon to more than 87 inches at Rocky Butte in the hills east of San Simeon.
