Where's your umbrella? You may actually need it this week

161224_rain.jpg
A trio of storm systems appears to be headed to the Central and South Coasts during the next week, but at this point none of them are expected to pose a threat to the region's bush fire burn zones.

Three storm systems in forecast for Central, South Coasts.

It’s been a while since we’ve been able to say this, but some rain is on the way for the Central and South Coasts. The first in what may be a trio of storms for the region, arrives Monday.

It won’t mean much rainfall, with possibly a tenth of an inch of rain Monday night and early Tuesday.

A second upper level trough will arrive Wednesday night. It could be slightly stronger, with a quarter of an inch of rain on the coast, and inland. The mountains may see a half inch of rainfall.

Then, a third storm might arrive early next week. Meteorologists say it’s so far out at this point it’s hard to judge its potential impacts, but it could be the strongest of the trio of systems. At this point, there are no concerns about problems in the region’s brush fire burn zones.
