This is also supported in high res model hourly precip rates, which highlights the Santa Lucias as receiving the highest rain rates of up to 0.5-0.6 inches per hour between 8 am to 5 pm. Weather Prediction Center has also highlighted the Central Coast south of Monterey Bay as an area for marginal risk of excessive rainfall today. The aforementioned forecasted hourly rates are below burn scar debris flow thresholds, but will continue to monitor closely throughout the day today. A slight risk for minor localized flooding exists today, however, especially along HWY 1.
In total for the weekend, projected storm total rainfall amounts have increased slightly for the Santa Lucias, which are expected to receive anywhere from 2-5", with locally up to 5.5" at highest peaks.
