Wednesday morning forecast – Dec. 4th

A strong storm arrives southwest of California with widespread rain for Northern and Southern California. Moderate to locally heavy rain is expected along with strong wind. This will allow for temperatures to dip with the coasts and valleys in the upper 50s to low 60s.

A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for Santa Barbara and Ventura County until Noon Wednesday. Rainfall rates between .50-1.00" per hour are possible, especially near thunderstorms. This will prompt a risk for debris flow and flash flooding for recently burned areas such as the Cave fire in Santa Barbara County and the Maria and Easy burn scars in Ventura County.

The system will also prompt strong winds with a Wind Advisory in effect until 3PM Wednesday. The Santa Ynez range, Santa Barbara and Ventura County will be breezy with SE wind 20-35 mph and gusts up to 50 mph.

Looking ahead, the storm will begin to diminish for Thursday with dry and cool conditions expected. A much weaker system will arrive Friday night into Saturday.
