SLO County gets spattering of rain — and more may be on the way

San Luis Obispo County saw anywhere between a hundredth of an inch and a quarter of an inch of rain by early Wednesday afternoon, according to the county Public Works website.

The greatest reported rainfall, 0.24 inch, was recorded at Camp San Luis, while Arroyo Grande reported 0.01 inch of rain.

PG&E meteorologist John Lindsey said that the rain was the result of a cold front moving south through San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties. That cold front will be followed by “strong to gale force” northwesterly winds up to 38 mph.

Though the rest of the week will be seasonably cool, Lindsey wrote that San Luis Obispo could see 80-degree heat on Sunday, Christmas Eve, with rain possible early Christmas week.
