Second in series of storms only drops light rain on Central, South Coasts but third next week could create debris flow concerns.

But, third storm early next week could be one of the biggest of the season.

The second is a series of three storms moved through the Central and South Coasts Thursday, with rainfall light throughout the region.

Rainfall totals were below a quarter of an inch in most spots. In fact, the heaviest rainfall from the storm was to the south of us, with some parts of Los Angeles County getting nearly a half inch of rain.

The third of the string of storm expected to hit the region is now expected Monday night, into Tuesday. Meteorologists sat it’s moving a little slower than expected. It could pack a punch, with one to three inches of rain expected for the coast, and inland.

Mountain areas could get up to five inches of rain, with even more possible for the Santa Ynez Mountains. There are no watches or warning at this point for brush fire burn areas, but it’s possible some may be issued over the weekend because of the potential for debris flows.
