Storm Could Bring Two Inches Of Rain To Central, South Coasts; No Debris Flow Issues Anticipated

May 15, 2019

A storm system bringing what could be record rainfall for this time of year has arrived on the Central Coast, and will spread to the South Coast overnight Wednesday.  But, no serious problems like major debris flows are expected in brush fire burn zones.

Meteorologists say we are still on track to get around a half inch of rain on the coast, and up to two inches in our mountain, and foothill areas.

San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara Counties could see the heaviest rainfall during the early morning hours Thursday, right around sunrise.

The storm will be heaviest in Ventura and Los Angeles Counties from around six to ten a.m.  There could be some scattered thunderstorms with some locally heavy rain.  The fast moving system is expected to clear the region by Thursday afternoon.
