As of 7 a.m. Tuesday, most of the Central Coast locations recorded more than a quarter inch of rain.

Rocky Butte in the Santa Lucia Mountains has recorded nearly two inches of precipitation.

A cold front to the west of San Luis Obispo will produce winds from 20 to 30 mph along the coastline on Tuesday afternoon.

Rain will change to showers behind the front later this afternoon into Tuesday night, with total rainfall amounts expected to range between 0.75 and 1.50 inches with higher amounts in the Santa Lucia Mountains.

What's the difference between rain and showers? When we call for rain, it's a more widespread event. Showers are more scattered. That usually means that not everyone will be getting wet at the same time.

Snow levels will lower to 4,000 feet by Wednesday as temperatures drop.

A break in the rain will occur on Thursday with partly cloudy skies and winds from 20 to 40 mph.

Friday, a cold front will move across the Central Coast. Unsettled weather and showers are expected to continue through the week with a break on Saturday and Sunday.
