SLO County rainfall totals as of 8 a.m. Wednesday

The rainstorm that began moving into the Central Coast Monday night stayed in the area through Tuesday night, dropping about 3 inches of rain in some areas of SLO County.

Further south, in Santa Barbara County, flooding and mudslides brought on by heavy rains killed at least 15 people, downed power lines, destroyed homes and closed Highway 101 indefinitely.

A high-pressure ridge of air is forecast to build back up over California on Thursday, producing clear skies, cool mornings and warm afternoons, according to PG&E meteorologist John Lindsey.

More clouds and areas of light rain and drizzle could develop on next Tuesday and Wednesday, Lindsey said. Moderate to heavy rain could move into SLO County on Jan. 19, Lindsey said.
