A fast moving Pacific storm has arrived on the Central and South Coasts Thursday, but it’s not expected to pose major problems for the region’s brush fire burn zones. It could drop a quarter to three quarters of an inch of rain along the coast and inland.

An upper level trough could create some unstable weather on the South Coast for the next few days, including some thunderstorms and locally heavy rain. The potential for thunderstorms is in the forecast during the afternoons and early evenings through Friday.

A late spring storm is going to bring the chance of rain for the Central and South Coasts for much of the Memorial Day weekend. Meteorologists say there’s no threat to the region’s brush fire burn areas. But the upper level low means we could see mostly cloudy conditions Saturday and Sunday.

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”.

Keep your umbrella handy. You may need it for the next few days, with everything from sprinkles to locally heavy rain possible for the Central and South Coasts.

The forecast is going to be a tricky one, with a low pressure system over Nevada backsliding our way.

After some warmer than average weather for the Central and South Coast, a chance of rain is returning to the region. But, none of the three weak systems are expected to pose a threat to brush fire burn zones.

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.

We’re having one of the best rainfall seasons in years, with drought conditions easing for much of the state.

But one of the nation’s leading oceanographers says there’s much more involved before the impacts of the drought are completely gone, and that it could take years to replenish groundwater supplies.

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.

The first in a trio of storms headed to the Central and South Coasts dropped more than an inch of rain in some of the region’s mountains Wednesday and Thursday, but no problems were reported in brush fire burn zones. But, some bigger storms are on the way.

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.

A storm system could bring up to a half inch of rain to the Central and South Coasts Sunday afternoon and evening. The first part of the storm moved through the region overnight Saturday into Sunday. 

The second wave isn’t expected to bring heavy rainfall, so there are no watches or warnings for brush fire burn areas. However, it’s a cold storm, and the snow level is expected to drop down to 2000 feet.

The second wave of a major storm moved through the Central and South Coast Thursday, dropping sometimes heavy rainfall but creating no major problems for the region. Rainfall totals ranged from around a half inch to around four inches in some spots.

Enjoy the break in the wet weather we’re getting, because it won’t last long. A storm system is headed towards the Central and South Coasts, one which could bring heavy rain at times from Tuesday night into Thursday.

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.
