Two storms to hit Central, South Coast by end of weekend, but rainfall totals expected to be light

Two storms could bring up to a half-inch of rain on Central, South Coasts.

Rainfall from both systems predicted to be under half an inch.

The first in a pair of storm systems to hit the Tri-Counties is arriving in the region.

The initial storm could bring light rain to the Central and South Coast Thursday night, into Friday morning. After a break Friday, the second system will arrive Saturday morning, again creating light rainfall.

Rainfall totals for both storms are expected to be from around two-tenths of an inch, to the half inch range. No issues are expected in the region’s brush fire burn zones.

Santa Barbara County’s mountains could receive three to six inches of snow, while Ventura County mountains could get up to a foot above the 4000 foot level.
