Rain Today

Good Thursday morning,

Yes, rain day has arrived.

It does look like the rain will start to the north late this morning, and then arrive in Santa Barbara in the midafternoon.

Rain total, however are going to be light. This is a system coming at us from the northwest. This never helps rain fall totals in Santa Barbara.

As you can see on the satellite picture we are getting the tail end of a huge system that has been pounding the northern areas all week.http://www.wrh.noaa.gov/lox/scripts/animate.php?root=sat_16km&list=IR16.GIF.3.jpg,IR16.GIF.4.jpg,IR16.GIF.5.jpg,IR16.GIF.6.jpg,IR16.GIF.7.jpg,IR16.GIF.8.jpg

Rain will turn to showers, then wind. Friday we should see some scattered showers on and off through the day.

Then on Friday night I expect a pretty big wind event from the northwest that should hit Santa Barbara pretty hard.

Saturday and Sunday look to be dry, but much cooler

Sunday night into Monday another round of rain, and then a third system on Tuesday will bring us more chances of rain. Rain will remain on the light side, but we should get some additional rainfall. We will watch and update, as it gets closer.

Ok that's it for now. Have a nice day. Rain will be here around 3ish today
