The leading edge of the storm arrives at Port San Luis
The Central Coast saw quite the wet weather pattern over the weekend.
Highway 1 was closed Sunday night from Mud Creek to Deetjen’s Big Sur Inn, Caltrans announced at about 7 p.m.
“Several rocks have fallen on Highway 1 south of Big Sur per CHP,” the agency said.
The road was closed overnight and reopened at 10 a.m. Monday.
And the weather caused San Luis Obispo’s parks and recreation department to close two hiking trails: Lemon Grove Loop on Cerro San Luis (aka Madonna Mountain) and Johnson Ranch.
The storm brought more than an inch of rain to most locations around SLO County, with places like Santa Margarita and Rocky Butte receiving 3.72 and 5.12 inches, respectively, according to PG&E meteorologist John Lindsey.
And it’s not over yet: The weekend weather was just the beginning of a storm series that will last through the week.
“We’ll still get rain,” Lindsey said. “We’re on track to get maybe another 3 inches or so between now and Tuesday.”
The Central Coast could see three-quarters to an inch of rain on Wednesday, Lindsey said. There will be a break in the rain on Thursday, but another storm will roll in on Friday.
Lindsey forecasted another inch on Saturday and another three-quarters of an inch on Sunday.
