A weak cold front will bring the potential for light rain across Southwest California Thursday night into Friday night, with most areas expected to receive less than a third of an inch. Rainfall estimates for Montecito are expected to range between one and two tenths of an inch with this first storm. Behind the front, colder air will spread across the area bringing the threat of snow showers across the mountains and higher foothills Friday afternoon into Friday night. During this time, there is the potential for snow showers and gusty northwest winds across Interstate 5 near the Grapevine. A second storm system has the potential to bring additional rainfall to the area early next week, potentially bringing higher rainfall totals than the first storm. However, there is low confidence with this second storm in regards to timing and amounts. High surf will also impact west and northwest facing beaches this week. Breakers could potentially reach damaging levels greater than 20 feet along the Central Coast between Thursday and Friday. Surf of 6-12 feet is expected for west facing beaches of Los Angeles and Ventura counties much of this week, possibly reaching as high as 14 feet at Ventura Harbor late Thursday into Friday. Other potential marine impacts include deadly rip currents, dangerous sneaker waves, and coastal erosion.
