A Special Weather Statement has been issued by the National Weather Service:
HEAVY RAIN AND STRONG WINDS POSSIBLE LATER THIS WEEK
A prolonged period of wet, mild and occasionally windy weather is taking shape for the Central Coast and other areas of Western Oregon. Very heavy rain and strong winds are headed this way. The rain may become heavy enough to bring the threat of flooding to streams and rivers by Thursday, maybe sooner, and with the ground already saturated, landslides will be something to be prepared for as well. The latest forecast models suggest two distinct, very strong frontal systems moving in. Each storm will bring heavy rain with overall totals approaching 2-4 inches on the Central Coast, but as much as 4-8 inches in the Coast Range. Very strong coastal winds are also projected during this timeframe.
We will continue to monitor this situation through the next few days and provide updates as soon as they become available.
