First big 2014 rain soaks SLO County
February 3, 2014
Rainfall finally arrived in San Luis Obispo County on Sunday, but not nearly enough to compensate for three years of drought.
Santa Margarita was one of the wettest spots with 1.1 inches of rain. Shandon received the lowest rainfall with only .23 inches.
A weak storm system could bring additional rainfall on Thursday.
Nevertheless, a strong ridge of high pressure over California that has been blocking Pacific storms since December is still in place.
Inches of rain that fell from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Sunday:
Arroyo Grande: 0.30
Camp San Luis: 1.02
Los Osos: 0.78
San Simeon: .39
Santa Margarita: 1.10
