Good Tuesday morning,

The rain is over for now, but rain totals were impressive.

Between the 2 storms we saw 3 to 4 inches of rain. That’s a good start to January. 

The satellite is still quite active with the next system spinning off the coast.

This system will move in on Wednesday. This will be more of a Northern California storm.

The Bay Area and sierra mountains will get hammered with more rain and snow.

For us, the rain will be much lighter. Looks like SLO will see 1/2 to an inch, but as it drops south, the rain totals drop way off.

Santa Ynez 1/4 to 1/2 Santa Barbara to Ventura 1/10 only. LA will see no rain.

Thursday and Friday will be dry days, but as evening arrives, so does the rain. 

This is going to be a cold storm, with snow levels very low.

The air is also unstable and we will see heavier rain overnight  into Saturday morning. 

After rain Saturday morning, we will dry out for Saturday, then possible into Sunday.

There is another system that will move in Sunday. There is still uncertainty to the strength and movement of this one.

Rain could be heavier or lighter depending on the track. We will just need to wait and see. 

Bottom line, it is going to be a wet period, with breaks between storms. 

Enjoy the fun, I will be back at you Wednesday morning.
