Many San Luis Obispo County residents woke up Thursday morning to cloudy skies and wet streets. The rain, which began falling early Thursday morning, is suspected of causing a vehicle to crash into a power pole in Atascadero.
According to PG&E meteorologist John Lindsey, the Central Coast can expect cloudy skies with areas of fog, drizzle and scattered showers to continue through early Friday morning as a weak cold front moves through the area. The sky will clear up Saturday and Sunday, with slightly warmer temperatures, but the North County will see fog in the morning and at night, Lindsey said.
