montecito storms

What could be the biggest storm on the season is on track to hit the Central and South Coasts this week, and is prompting concern about the potential for flash flooding, and debris flows on the Central and South Coasts.

There are still questions about the timing of the storm, but we could see heavy rainfall between early Wednesday and Thursday.

Since the massive January 9th debris flow, emergency crews in Santa Barbara County have been clearing areas to open passages for more rainfall runoff in case of a storm like the one in the area this week.

The next week could be soggy for the Central and South Coasts, but the latest forecast shows rainfall amounts are expected to be below the levels which would cause flash flood and debris flow concerns in burn areas.

A series of storms is headed towards the Central and South Coasts.
