Public Meeting with Cal Trans on 2 South Coast Projects

Caltrans will be hosting a public meeting at the Willow Springs Maintenance Yard on Wednesday, May 20, 2015, at 10:00 AM, to review the Elephant Trunk retaining wall project and the upcoming Big Creek retaining wall project. The purpose of this meeting will be for Caltrans to provide overview of scope of both projects and current traffic management planning as well as to receive input from the public.

Unless unforeseen events prevent me, I will attend this meeting and report back.

Unsettled weather

okay, so it’s not REAL rain, yet, but it is wet AND cold up here, only 38 degrees. The “drizzle” is enough to have gotten the dogs wet this am.  SLO Co is still expecting drizzle and scattered rain today and tomorrow. From my SLO forecaster:

“A cold 547 dm upper-level low pressure system will pass over the Central Coast today into Friday with increasing clouds and   extensive night and morning marine stratus, fog and mist/drizzle   and cool temperatures. In fact, today’s maximum temperatures    will only reach the 60s in the North County and coastal valleys, while the beaches will remain in the 50s.


 As this late-season system moves closer, scattered rain showers will develop across our area this afternoon into early Friday   morning. As the atmosphere becomes more unstable this afternoon,  thunderstorms could develop throughout the Central Coast, but  more likely in the eastern regions of San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties. Total rainfall amounts will remain below a   quarter of an inch for most locations, except for those areas   impacted by thunderstorms were rainfall amounts could be much greater.  


This low will produce thunderstorm and rain showers across the Sierra Nevada mountains with scattered showers possible across  the foothills through Saturday. Snow levels are  expected to  drop to 5,500 feet. “
