Rain totals higher than expected

Down here, totals are between 1 and 3/4 and almost 2″. A lot more than expected, and it is still raining at 10:30 am. From John Lindsey in SLO:

“Scattered rain showers will continue through tonight. Today’s temperatures will be cooler under the cloud cover; however, overnight lows will remain mild with the subtropical moisture.

A stronger cold front is expected to arrive Tuesday morning with moderate to fresh (13 to 24 mph) southerly winds and rain. This system is expected to produce between 0.25 and 0.75 inches of rain and mountain snow above 6,500 feet. Nevertheless, there is a chance that this system could tap into a fetch of subtropical moisture, and if that happens, healthier amounts of precipitation are possible along the Central Coast and in the southern Sierra Nevada. There is also a chance of thunderstorms developing Tuesday afternoon. Rain showers should taper off by Tuesday night.

  1. 1.5″ on Willow. That takes us over 90″ so far for this rainy season! That should keep the wildflowers blooming.
