Recent winter rains have brought San Luis Obispo Creek to life with a steady flow of water emptying into the ocean in Avila Beach, California.

Following a week of heavy rain, frost and snow, San Luis Obispo County got a bit of a break over the weekend — but more rain is in the forecast.

Storms soaked the county on Saturday and Sunday, dropping more than an inch of rain total in places including Cambria, Arroyo Grande and Nipomo.

Monday and Tuesday are expected to be dry and chilly, with overnight lows in the upper 20s and 30s and daytime highs in the 50s, according to PG&E meteorologist John Lindsey.

A “vigorous” cold front will move through the area Wednesday, bringing heavy rain, and rain showers could linger into Thursday, Lindsey said. Total rainfall amounts with that system are expected to range between 1.50 and 3.00 inches.

Dry weather is expected to return Friday and Saturday, with more wet weather developing for next Sunday and Monday, Lindsey said.

Here’s how much rain your area received over the weekend.
