Storm bringing rain, snow, and gusty winds anticipated Sunday night

Posted at 4:57 PM, Dec 28, 2019

After a chilly start to the day, Saturday ended up being a nice day with limited cloud coverage and temperatures around 61 degrees for most parts of the Central Coast.

We aren't anticipating temperatures to be as cool Saturday night as they were Friday night, so no frost advisories have been issued at this time.

Things will take a turn Sunday morning however, with cloud coverage increasing throughout the day before the first storm cells make their way off the coast around 6 p.m.


This cold, low pressure system will include rain, mountain snow and gusty winds into Monday, with mountain snow lingering into Tuesday.

Rainfall totals for the Central Coast are ranging from .5-1.5", with the threat of thunderstorms and roadway flooding.

The Santa Barbara County mountains have been placed back under a Winter Storm Watch and are anticipated to receive 4-8 inches of snow.

This system has the potential for roadways closures on the I-5 Grapevine area once again due to how much snowfall could accumulate.

The gusty offshore winds are creating the possibility of high surf as soon as Monday afternoon.
