Rain is continuing to make its way through our area.
While the rain totals have not accumulated to much so far (less than .05 of an inch for most parts of San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties), there is still a slight chance for thunderstorm activity overnight.
This low pressure system will weaken and move towards Arizona by Tuesday, but cooler temperatures are expected throughout the week.
Tuesday and Wednesday’s weather outlook remains cloudy in the morning, before clearing up by the afternoon.
The next storm is expected to make its way in on Thursday and is anticipated to look a lot like the pattern from this storm.
The National Weather Service says it will be created by combining one system coming from Nevada and another from Hawaii. The rainfall rates could be less than .25 of an inch again.
Our rainfall rates pale in comparison to the concerns rising for the Central parts of the U.S., which could see more flooding on top of already damp areas.
The coming week will be a wet one for most of the central U.S., especially across the Lower Plains and Lower Mississippi Valley. With already saturated soils throughout the region, flooding remains a concern. pic.twitter.com/joz0OaEHWj
