Week Long String Of Storms Expected To Hit Central, South Coasts

RAIN.JPEG

A series of progressively stronger storms is headed to the Central and South Coasts, bringing some much needed rain to the region.

The first storm has already arrived.  It’s not a big one, with rainfall amounts expected to be less than a quarter of an inch before things clear out late Saturday.

The second storm will pass through our area Sunday night into Monday.  Rainfall amounts could be in the half inch to three quarters of an inch range.

Then, a third storm will arrive late next week.  Meteorologists say the timing of the third one is still a little up in the air, but it could be Wednesday or Thursday.  That storm has the potential to drop one to three inches of rain.

So far, no issues are predicted for the region’s brush fire burn zones. 

With the storms getting progressively colder, it’s possible the snow level could drop as low as to 2000 feet during the third storm next week.
