We have a wet week of weather ahead as scattered showers have started making their way into the area.

Periods of moderate to heavy rain and snow are expected to return Monday, with showers potentially lingering into Wednesday.

Snow is anticipated to fall below major pass levels by Tuesday.

A plume of moisture is moving slowly into southern Santa Barbara County Sunday night into Monday.

Widespread moderate rain with pockets of heavy rain in the mountain areas of the Central Coast is anticipated at this time.

Wet and flooded roads are likely, but no debris flows at this time.

Snow levels will be dropping to 5000-5500 ft range, some even falling to 3000 ft.

Because of this, we have a Winter Storm Watch for the mountain areas of Santa Barbara County extended into Tuesday morning.

There is a small chance of thunderstorms making their way off the water and coming onshore Monday night.

Winds are at Small Craft Advisory level through Monday morning and are expected to decrease once the cold front passes.
