8:15 am – up to .41″ already. Going to be a fun day!
7:30 am – At 6 am, there was nary a drop of rain. At 7:00 am it was pouring, and that continues. Already up to .20″ No major road conditions on Highway One to report at this time, BUT several mudslides in SLO Co reported, and remember the Big Sur hills are already saturated, so expect difficult conditions to develop. Will continue reports as needed throughout the day.
These are the current conditions: (graphic to be posted when Internet allows)
Per John Lindsey, SLO forecaster: “Rainfall amounts with this system are expected to range between 0.50 and 1.25 inches. Overall, between 1.25 and 2.75 inches of rain is forecast between today into Monday with higher amounts in the Santa Lucia mountains.”

Started at 7:30 here, coming down at about 0.4″ an hour, my SWAG.
Passing the quarter inch mark here at the school, and raining like all-get-out. with no end in sight. The barometer has been taking a steep dive. Howling southerly winds, too. I’ll report more later on.
Thanks, Dave. Yes, continues up here, too. Probably past the 1/2″ mark by now, 9 am.
.95 at Big Sur Station as of 11:00 a.m.
Thanks, Tim. About the same, here.
At noon, now it is 3/4 inch in the gauge at the school. On/off heavy rain.
Now, .9 inches of rain in the gauge. Intervals of short but heavy and drenching showers around the school. It’s getting chilly, following that passing cold front.
