Rain is in SLO County's forecast for Thursday

You know that rain you’ve been secretly dancing for? It’s coming. But keep on dancing because it’s going to pass quickly.

Light and scattered showers are expected to fall in parts of San Luis Obispo County today, leaving about a tenth of an inch of rain. Strong, gale-force winds along the coast and a layer of fog and low clouds will likely offer a reprieve from the sun.

“Normally, we wouldn’t even bat an eye about that small amount of rain,” said John Lindsey, PG&E meteorologist. “But at least it will feel like winter for a little while.”

The stormy weather is expected to taper off by midday Friday, with clear skies predicted for Saturday.

Another storm system, moving from Northern California, might bring another small amount of rain Sunday. However, there is a good chance that storm will stay too far from shore to bring much rain, Lindsey said.

And then the rain will be gone. A high-pressure ridge will likely build over California on Monday, producing mostly clear and dry weather next week.

The last time San Luis Obispo County got more than an inch of rain in one 24-hour period was Dec. 22, 2012.
