Rain Still On Way For Central, South Coasts; No Issues Expected In Brush Fire Burn Areas

RAINII.JPEG

A storm system expected to bring rain to the Central and South Coasts is still on the way, but it’s moving a little slower than expected. A low pressure system nearly 500 miles southwest of Point Conception is sending the rain our way.

The heaviest rainfall is expected on the Central Coast after midnight Saturday, with the South Coast receiving its peak amounts later Saturday morning. But, rainfall totals aren’t expected to be heavy.

Coastal areas could get up to a third of an inch of rain, with the foothills and mountains possibly getting two thirds of an inch of rainfall. The rain is expected to be well below levels which would cause issues in brush fire burn areas. No watches or warnings have been issued.
