Tuesday morning,

The sunshine is back for a day. This is kind of like being in the eye of a hurricane, but time is prolonged before the craziness begins.

Here is the big low pressure system to the north, taking aim at us:

This storm system will begin the rain event over night, from north to south. This system will stall over SLO and Santa Barbara county’s, creating a wild event. LA will really be spared until Thursday night and Friday. Also their rain totals will be much less then ours. This system has good counter clockwise rotation and will tap into the subtropical jet. Rain totals for SB county are still on track for 3 to 6 inches coastal and 8 to 10 inches in the mountains. Yes this is a big one. Rain will be heavy both Wednesday and Thursday, as the system stalls over us. Our south facing mountains will squeeze out as much water out of the clouds as possible.

Friday, the shower will taper and be aimed over LA.

The weekend is looking nice, with sun and warmer temps.

Get ready, today is the only chance you have before the big event.
