More rain on the way,

Potentially bigger storm headed our way mid-week.

You know it already. The Tri-Counties was hit by a whopper of a storm. But, how wet was it?

Rainfall totals in the region ranged from more than two inches in most coastal, and inland areas to more than six inches in a few mountain areas.

Ventura County had 2.4" in Ventura, 3.1" in Thousand Oaks and 2.2" in Moorpark.

In Santa Barbara County, Santa Barbara had 3.6", San Marcos Pass 5.8", and Solvang 2.6".

And, San Luis Obispo County had some of the highest totals. Arroyo Grande had 4.2", San Luis Obispo had 4.5", and Rocky Butte, in extreme northwestern San Luis Obispo County had 6.9".

Another storm system is expected to arrive in the region Monday night, and mean light rainfall into Tuesday morning.

Yet another system could arrive Wednesday night into Thursday, and meteorologists say it has the potential to be bigger than the weekend storm.
