Storm On Track For Saturday Arrival On South Coast; No Evacuations Ordered

Mar 9, 2018

A storm continues to move towards the Central and South Coasts, but public safety officials continue to say that it doesn’t appear that it will meet thresholds to prompt evacuation orders for the region’s brush fire burn areas.

The latest updated forecast calls for the rain to begin on the South Coast around midday Saturday, with the heaviest rain in Ventura and Santa Barbara County mountains. The strongest rainfall for the region is now predicted to come between 6 p.m., and midnight.

Rainfall amounts could be in the half inch range on the coast, and top an inch in the mountains before the storm clears Sunday.
