Second summer storm of sprinkles falls on Paso Robles 

For the second time in two weeks, Paso Robles received a few drops of overnight rainfall. Early Monday morning from about 4:10-4:40 a.m. sprinkles fell leaving .01 inches, according to staff at the Paso Robles Water Yard located at 1230 Paso Robles St. On July 15, the city reported .02 inches of rainfall during a brief, humid, monsoon storm.

The sprinkles bring the city’s seasonal rainfall to .03 inches. The season began July 1 and runs to June 30. The 2013-14 rainfall season yielded 6.13 inches, according to city records. The 2012-13 rainfall season yielded 7.18 inches. The drought conditions are about half of the city’s average of 14.11 inches per year, as recorded by the city since 1942.

The scant rainfall this year has yet to fill the local lakes. Lake Nacimiento is 19-percent of capacity and Lake San Antonio is just 4-percent of its capacity, according to the Monterey County Water Resources Agency.
