Dry conditions until showers hit mid-week

Posted at 5:28 PM, Nov 25, 2018

Skies are mostly sunny through the weekend with a few high clouds sticking around. Meanwhile, temperatures are trending a few degrees above what we saw on Saturday.

Weak offshore winds will continue through Tuesday morning before shifting onshore in the afternoon hours. As winds transition, expect temperatures to cool by a few degrees. The next storm system is expected to reach the Central Coast as early as Tuesday night into Wednesday morning.

The storm system is expected to bring gusty winds Wednesday with up to 3 inches across the northwest portion of the San Luis Obispo County foothills. The peak rainfall rates will likely be 0.25 to 0.5 inches per hour. This could cause some minor debris flow in the recent burn areas of LA and Butte Counties including Pacific Coast Highway, Malibu Canyon, Kanan Road, and Decker Canyon.

While this storm is predicted to be stronger than last week’s storm, the Santa Barbara County Office of Emergency Management says the rainfall is not likely to cause debris flow in or around recent burn areas of Santa Barbara County.
