Sunday evening forecast Dec 29th

A fast moving storm system will push through region and possibly linger through Monday. A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for portions of Santa Barbara & Ventura Counties. Snow levels could drop to as low as 3000-feet with accumulations exceeding 6-inches above 5000-feet! It will stay windy and cool for Monday and then try to slowly warm up through New Years. One other weather related concern will be very large surf which will hit the entire region by Tuesday. The swell will be from northwest and mostly be of concern along the Central Coast.  But all beaches that face North or West will likely see some very large waves.
Our latest Winter storm continues to push south through Northern and now Central California. As expected, the bulk of the energy has stayed well to our north. With that said, we will see at least light to moderate showers through the evening and in to at least early Monday. Rain totals will be heaviest north of Pt. Conception and less farther south. However, if enough energy does move a little more to the south and stay over the ocean, we could see higher rain totals for the South Coast and Ventura. In addition, chilly northerly winds will help to drop the snow levels to as low as 2500-feet. This could very well impact any mountain roads, including the I-5 the the Grapevine. That in turn, as we all experienced recently, means the 101 gets impossibly congested!  We will monitor closely!
Looking in to 2020, high pressure is expected to hold firm with just some partly cloudy skies at times in to next weekend. Temperatures will try to rebound slightly through Friday and then possibly more so next weekend. At this time, we do not see any significant threats for more rain.
