Pair Of Storms Headed To Central, South Coasts; No Issues Anticipated For Brush Fire Burn Zones

RAIN_1.jpg

A storm system headed towards the Central and South Coasts could bring the chance of rain for the next few days, but no serious issues are predicted for the region’s brush fire burn zones.

The storm will push into San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara Counties Tuesday night, and then spread into Ventura County.

Rainfall totals could be in the half inch range north of Point Conception, and about a third of an inch to the south of it. Meteorologists think a cutoff low will park itself off the Central Coast, which means we could see a chance of showers into Thursday.

Another storm system is headed our way for the weekend, but computer models differ at this point over whether it will arrive Friday night or later in the weekend. The second system is also expected to be relatively mild.
