Rain is on the way for the Tri-Counties. Meteorologists say a significant winter storm will hit the region this week.

The first rainfall could arrive on the Central Coast late Wednesday night, but Thursday is expected to be one of the wettest days of the week.

Coastal and inland areas could see one to two inches of rain, with two to four inches in the mountains. The latest computer models say the system will stick around for a few days, with showers possible through Sunday.

At this point, there are no warnings for flooding, or debris flows in brush fire burn zones in the region.
