While San Luis Obispo County residents continue to clean up from a series of atmospheric rivers and winter storms, more rain is on the way.

The latest atmospheric river is forecast to push through the Central Coast on Thursday afternoon through Friday night. Expect rainfall of 5 inches to 10 inches on the north coastal areas and 2 inches to 4 inches throughout the rest of the county, according to the National Weather Service.

SLO County will be under a flood watch from Thursday afternoon through Friday evening.

“Excessive runoff may result in dangerous flooding of rivers, creeks, streams, and other low-lying and flood-prone locations,” according to the National Weather Service. “Extensive street flooding is likely.”

I’m bracing for the reasoning that will be given to say that we are still in a drought, need to make cuts on water usage, and raise water rates to cover the lost income.

Otherwise they’d be doing their taxes

Taxes are not due till October due to storms … .. Woohoo !!!
