Tuesday’s rain hit the Southcoast of Santa Barbara county the hardest with a few spots actually topping 2″, however in general rain stayed between .80-1.5″ for the Southcoast.  This averted concerns about mudslides, flooding and debris flows.

While a disappointment to some the rain did come with very strong winds up to 50-60 miles per hour.
