Storm System Moving Away From Coast; No Flooding Concerns For Brush Fire Burn Zones

Feb 13, 2018

A storm system off the West Coast continues to drift away from the coast, and emergency services officials say as expected it didn’t create any new flash flood, or debris flow concerns for the Central and South Coasts.

Rainfall ranged from a few sprinkles to about a tenth of an inch in some mountain areas. It was never even close to thresholds which would trigger evacuations in brush fire burn zones.

The low is expected to continue to move southwest. As we approach the weekend, we could see Santa Ana wind conditions set up for Ventura and Los Angeles Counties, with a spike in temperatures and increase brush fire danger.
