Tri-Counties not done with storm system yet

Rain could continue through Sunday, with heaviest amounts expected on Central Coast.

It’s going to be a wet weekend in the Tri-Counties, but the heaviest remaining rainfall from the two-part storm could be on the Central Coast.

We could see one to three inches of rain in San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara Counties before the storm activity is over. Ventura County’s totals will mostly be under an inch. But, mountains and foothills on the Central Coast could see another two inches of rainfall.

Much of the rain was focused in Ventura County Friday, but the storm will shift to north of Point Conception for the rest of the weekend.

Rainfall totals as of noon Friday included .51” in Ojai, .46” in Oxnard, .63” in Santa Barbara, 1.5” on San Marcos Pass, 1.9” in Shell Beach, 1.85” in Arroyo Grande, and 2” in San Luis Obispo.

There have been no serious flooding or debris flow issues reported in the region’s brush fire burn zones.
