Storm headed for Southland will bring hours of rain Saturday
“In the scale of a winter storm, it’s not huge,” weather specialist Bonnie Bartling said. “But it’s probably bigger than what we’ve had in a while.”
Bartling said the storm system, which originated off Vancouver Island, will bring about a half-inch to 1.5 inches of rain, along with breezy conditions and gusts of wind. But she said the weather service has not issued any wind advisories yet.
“It will be a fairly moderate four- to six-hour rain period Saturday,” Bartling said. “And then a cold front will pass through and bring cold air. There will be showers on Sunday, and then poof, it’s gone.”
