Storm System Could Bring 1-3" Of Rain To Central, South Coasts; No Debris Flow Issues Expected

A strong storm system is headed to the Central and South Coast, one which could bring between one to three inches of rain to much of the region.

We’ll see increased clouds Saturday, but the storm won’t arrive until Sunday.  The Central Coast could start getting light rain early Sunday.  The South Coast will get its heaviest rainfall Sunday night into Monday.

Storm totals could range from three quarters of an inch to an inch and a half on the coast and inland.  The mountains and foothills could see an inch and a half to three inches of rain.

The rainfall could be locally heavy at times, but meteorologists say it won’t be focused enough to cause serious problems like debris flows in the region’s brush fire burn zones.  They say we could see some minor street flooding.
