A weak storm system is moving through the Central and South Coasts Monday, but meteorologists say it isn’t posing any type of flooding threat for the region’s brush fire burn zones. The storm brought rainfall amounts topping a quarter of an inch to the Central Coast Sunday night.

However, it’s expected the system will come apart as it moves south of Point Conception. Rainfall totals for Southern Santa Barbara County, and Ventura County are expected range from a tenth of an inch to a quarter of an inch.

The system is expected to be through the region by Monday evening. There are no flood or debris flow warnings for any of the brush fire burn areas on the Central and South Coasts.
