More than an inch of rain fell on San Benito County on Halloween and into Saturday, dampening Halloween spirits but lifting hopes that the welcome weather would put a dent in the lingering drought.
The National Weather Service reported that local rainfall totals ranged from just over an inch at Pinnacles National Park to nearly 2 inches in northern areas of San Benito County. The City of Hollister recorded about an inch-and-a-half of precipitation through early Saturday morning.
"An unstable air mass will remain over the area through the morning and into the afternoon with additional showers and isolated thunderstorms expected" on Saturday, according to the NWS.
