Storm on way for Central and South Coasts, but you may not need your umbrella

A storm system is expected to bring about a qurter of an inch of rain to the Central and South Coasts Saturday.

Rainfall totals expected to be light in the region.

A storm system appears to be on the way to the Central and South Coasts this weekend, but rainfall from it isn’t expected to be significant.

Meteorologists says the system is expected to arrive in San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara Counties Saturday afternoon. It will then spread to Ventura County Saturday night.

Rainfall totals are predicted to be around a quarter of an inch, or less. No flooding, or debris flow issues are expected in the region’s brush fire burn zones. But, the storm is expected to mean huge cooling in our temperatures, dropping 10 to 15 degrees over the weekend.

The storm is expected to clear the region Sunday afternoon.
