DISCUSSION:
SHOWER ACTIVITY WILL WIND DOWN THROUGH THE DAY TODAY. THE BEST
CHANCE OF RAIN WILL BE IN THE MOUNTAINS AND ACROSS THE CENTRAL
COAST. THERE IS A SLIGHT CHANCE OF A THUNDERSTORM ACROSS SLO AND
WESTERN SBA COUNTY.

RAINFALL AMOUNTS WILL BE VERY VARIABLE DUE TO THE SHOWERY NATURE OF
THE SYSTEM. BUT DO NOT EXPECT ANYTHING MORE THAN A QUARTER INCH WITH
MOST AREAS SEEING BETWEEN A TRACE AND A TENTH.

RAINFALL RATES WILL BE UNDER A QUARTER INCH PER HOUR...EXCEPT UNDER
THUNDERSTORMS WHERE RAINFALL RATES COULD REACH A THREE QUARTERS OF
AN INCH PER HOUR. THE ONLY SHOWER ACTIVITY TONIGHT WILL BE ACROSS
THE NORTHERN SLOPES.

SNOW LEVELS WILL BE AROUND 6000 FEET. SOME LIGHT ACCUMULATIONS ARE
POSSIBLE AT ELEVATIONS OVER 6500 FEET IN THE VENTURA AND LOS ANGELES
COUNTY MOUNTAINS.

HIGH PRESSURE WILL DEVELOP SUNDAY AND KEEP THE AREA DRY THROUGH NEXT
WEEK.
