The next few days will bring more mild yet chilly weather to the Central Coast before the largest storm of the season makes its way to us.
The storm is currently brewing over the Aleutian Islands in Alaska and will start to plunge south this weekend.
While a lot may change as models get a better hold on the storm over the weekend we are expecting a lot of rain from the system
As of this point, 1"-3" can be expected along the coast and coastal valleys with even higher amounts expected along south-facing ridges.
While this could change drastically as new models come in, that much rain could cause debris flows along burn scars. If you live near the Alisal Burn scar take extra caution with this storm and prepare accordingly.
It is important to keep a close eye on this forecast as it changes in the next few days.
After the storm clears sunny skies will return for Wednesday.
Have a great Weekend Central Coast!
