At this time the storm system appears to bring the potential for more widespread rainfall with at least moderate rain intensities. Preliminary forecast modeling calls for .50″-1″ totals throughout the region.
Moderate rainfall intensity may carry the potential for minor debris flows to recent burn areas, including all zones of the Thomas burn area.
