A blast of winter weather hit San Luis Obispo County on Monday, delighting some residents with small snow flurries and sending others scurrying for their heaters — and the cold weather will continue through at least Wednesday morning.
It was so cold, the National Weather Service issued a hard freeze warning from Monday night into Tuesday morning (and there was another hard freeze warning in place for Tuesday night into Wednesday morning).
