The freezing weather that hit San Luis Obispo County on Monday continued Wednesday, forcing some of us to consider how much we wanted to keep utility costs down as we cranked up the heaters.
The National Weather Service issued a two-day-long hard freeze warning that ended at 9 a.m. Wednesday morning, but not without giving the county some below-freezing temperatures to remember it by.
Even though the hard freeze warning is no longer in effect, the county will still see cold morning temperatures for the rest of the week, according to PG&E meteorologist John Lindsey.
Morning temperatures in the North County will drop to the mid-20s, lows in the coastal valleys will be in the low 30s, and beaches will see low temperatures between the mid- and high 30s, Lindsey said. From Wednesday through Friday, high temperatures throughout the county will reach between the mid- and high 50s, Lindsey said.
