rain

Rain is in the forecast for the Central and South Coasts, but so far it looks like there won’t be serious issues for the region’s brush fire burn zones.

The rain is expected to happen between now, and Wednesday night. The heaviest rain could come overnight Tuesday into Wednesday morning.

A storm system on the Central and South Coasts has done exactly what was expected, which is very little. But, some areas did get their first rainfall of the season. The heaviest rainfall was in Ventura County’s mountains, where Hungry Valley received nearly six tenths of an inch of rain. But, most coastal and inland areas had less than a tenth of an inch of rainfall.

The unseasonable weather moving through the Central and South Coast for the last few days brought more than an inch of rain to parts of the region. Gibraltar Peak above Montecito had 1.7” of rain. San Marcos Pass recorded 1.3” of rain, and Old Man Mountain in Ventura County had 1.2”.

A low pressure system moving through the Central and South Coasts is creating some unstable conditions, which could mean everything from light rain to thunderstorms for the weekend.

The heaviest rain so far has been in the mountains of Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties, where we’ve seen between a third of an inch, and an inch of rain.

The on and off showers are continuing on the Central and South Coasts, but continue to remain well below the level where they might cause concern in the region’s brush fire burn areas. Rainfall totals topped out at around a quarter of an inch in Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties.

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.

A major storm headed to the Central and the South Coasts could bring heavy rainfall Tuesday night and Wednesday morning, and that has prompted Santa Barbara County to issue evacuation orders. The storm is expected to arrive Tuesday night, and possibly hit in two waves.

Wet weather is hitting the South and Central Coasts as a storm moves through the region.

The rain is steady and widespread but not intense, so no problems are expected for burn areas.

The latest in a string of storms to impact the Central and South Coasts is going to move through the region Friday night and Saturday morning, but no issues are expected in the region’s brush fire burn areas. We could see a half inch to inch of rain on the coast and inland, and up to two inches in the mountains and foothills.

The first in what’s now predicted to be a string of three storms is leaving the Central and South Coasts Thursday morning. It wasn’t a big storm, dropping about a half inch of rain in San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara Counties, and about a third of an inch in some parts in of Ventura County.

You wouldn’t know it by the nice weather we had Tuesday, but a storm system with some of the coldest temperatures of the year is headed towards the Central and South Coasts. Light rainfall is predicted north of Point Conception Wednesday morning, spreading to the south Wednesday afternoon.

For the second weekend in a row, there’s rain in the forecast for the Central and South Coasts. But, the two storms in the forecast are predicted to only bring light rainfall to the region, and no problems are expected in brush fire burn zones.

For the first time in a week, the Central and South Coasts are getting a break from the string of storms which brought as much as ten inches of rain to parts of the region. Public works and Caltrans crews are taking advantage of the dry weather to clear creeks and debris basis filled by the storms. It won’t be a big break.

The latest in a string of storms to hit the Central and South Coasts could bring a half inch of rain to coast and inland areas, and up to two inches in the mountains. The rain comes after a weekend which brought more than six inches of rain to some spots.

Authorities have lifted mandatory evacuation orders for Santa Barbara County now that the brunt of the storm is over. Officials say rainfall did not reach critical levels to cause major debris flows.

The Ventura Beach RV Resort remains under mandatory evacuation.
