Second in series of three storms arrives on Central and South Coasts

A storm passing through the Central and South Coasts Wednesday night and Thursday morning is expected to drop around a quarter of an inch of rain.

Slightly stronger than first storm earlier in week, but no major problems anticipated.

The second is a trio of storms arrived on the Central and South Coasts Wednesday night. A weak low pressure system could bring up to a quarter of an inch to parts of the region. It’s a colder system than the one from earlier this week, so there could be some snow above the 4,500 foot level.

No issues are predicted for the region’s brush fire burn zones. The storm is expected to clear out of San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara Counties by midday Thursday. Ventura County could clear mid-afternoon Thursday.

The third, and what’s predicted to be the largest of the three systems is still expected to arrive around the end of the weekend. It could mean one to three inches of rain on the coast and inland, with even heavier amounts in the mountains.

Meteorologists say while there are no watches or warnings for debris flows at this point, we could see that happen as the storm gets closer to the region.
