Monday's rain in San Benito County's hills, valleys and lowlands stuck as snow — for a while at least — in the Diablo Range east of Hollister. The wintry blanket fell in the afternoon, following a wet weekend in which the National Weather Service reported just under 2 inches fell in Hollister during the 72 hours ending at 4:37 p.m. Monday.

A calmer period is predicted over the next week, with the drenching rains of the past two weeks replaced by sunny, cool, and — most importantly for flood ravaged portions of northern San Benito County — drier days.
