Wednesday will see rain early then much cooler temps for the rest of the day and Thursday.
The storm was born generated in the Gulf of Alaska and has plenty of truly cold air to work with. The storm is racing this direction quickly, and will also track of the area quickly Wednesday morning into the afternoon not staying long enough to drop more than .10-.40" generally though a few spots may exceed this forecast.
The cold air left behind may be unstable enough to produce a few thunderstorms Thursday but the chances look small (though great enough to mention), otherwise just partly cloudy and cool Thursday with highs only in the 50s.
he storm will lower the snow levels to the lowest height of the season, down to about 3500 ft by Thursday morning. If much is left of the system at that point snow showers are possible above 3500ft, which means the Cuyama valley and near foothills could be impacted as well as part of the Santa Ynez mountains.
Currently there are no advisories for the storm however.
Winds may gust at times up to 25mph with rain showers but it is not expected to be a big wind maker.
