Good wet Wednesday morning, 

It has been 6 weeks since we have had any rain. It is nice to hear it on my roof, and not in my house 😀.

The rain started last night and picked up after midnight, with the first wave of rain bringing us a little more than 1/2 inch so far. There were however, a few pockets of accumulation of over an inch.

As we look at the satellite, this is a large cold system with nice rotation, which will hang around for the next 36 hours.


As we wake up this morning with steady rain, which fell for 3 to 5 hours, will turn to showers. It is also chilly out there with mainly upper 40s with snow levels at 4000 feet. 45 degrees at my house and just over an inch of rain.


Showers will be spotty throughout the day, but will pick up this afternoon and evening again.

The snow levels will also drop to 2500 to 3000 feet. This will allow snow in the local mountains.

Today there will actually be periods with no rain for this morning, but showers will return this afternoon as more activity moves in. 

Thursday, the system will be over SLO and SB counties. It looks like, it will begin it's truck to the East at that point. It does look like showers will persist into Thursday afternoon before departing our area. 

Friday some wrap around moisture mainly in the eastern side of Southern California.

The weekend is going to be dry with some warming. Warming will be minimal with temps in the low 60s and still below normal.

Monday and Tuesday looks like there will be another system approaching SLO  and SB. This looks to produce some rain for us. It still is not clear how far south it will make it.

In the meantime, enjoy the rain and chill.

Dress warm and bring an umbrella.
