The National Weather Service in OXNARD has issued a

* Flood Advisory for...
  Eastern Santa Barbara County in southwestern California...
  Southeastern San Luis Obispo County in southwestern California...

* Until 1115 PM PDT

* At 805 PM PDT, Doppler radar and automated rain gauges indicated moderate
  to locally heavy showers moving into eastern Santa Barbara County and
  southeast San Luis Obispo County, with additional heavy showers offshore.
  These storms have a history of producing brief heavy downpours, capable
  of rates between 0.20 and 0.40 inches in a 30 minute time period.
  There is still a slight chance of thunderstorms this evening which
  could produce locally higher rates.

* These additional heavy downpours on top of very wet grounds will likely
  cause roadway flooding across portions of the advisory area. Portions of
  highways 101, 154, 166, and 192 will be at risk for additional roadway
  flooding with some of these heavier showers. In addition, minor debris
  flows are possible if heavier storms drift into the Whittier and Thomas
  burn areas.

* Some locations that could experience flooding include...
  Santa Barbara...Montecito...Carpinteria...Summerland...Cuyama...
  Carrizo Plain...Lake well as the Thomas and
  Whittier burn areas.


Turn around, don`t drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood
deaths occur in vehicles.

A Flood Advisory means river or stream flows are elevated, or ponding
of water in urban or other areas is occurring or is imminent.
