The second wave of a big storm system is hitting the Central and South Coasts Thursday morning. It could drop one to two inches of rain in coastal and inland areas. The foothills and mountains could top four inches. There are no evacuation orders for the region, but the National Weather Service has issued a flood advisory for Santa Barbara County, including the Thomas, Whittier, and Sherpa brush fire burn areas.

The advisory means you should stay alert, and if you feel threatened you should take action to stay safe.

There is a Flash Flood Watch for the Hill and Woolsey brush fire burn areas.

The jet stream is pushing some of the heaviest rain to the south of us, into Orange County.
