Rain

How quickly it will change. Right now looking just like it has been for the past 2 weeks, sunny, although a little cooler. It may be looking like the start of a typical day, but DON'T BE FOOLED.

It will change quickly. By 10 am we will see the clouds start to stream in.

Rain will start up right after lunch. This is thanks to the plume of moisture being pulled up from the south, taking dead aim for Santa Barbara. This will bring us moderate to heavy rain this afternoon.

Tonight more rain will fall as the front from the north drops down.

Rain totals have been growing with each of the model runs, and is still changing at this point. We will see at least 1/2 inch of rain. I think Santa Barbara; because of our south face will get at least an inch.

Mountains will receive 1 to 2 inches.Rain emoji

Tonight after the front rolls through the winds really come up. Expect winds of 45 miles an hour over night.windemoji

             Rain will be all but over Thursday and a warm up will begin for the next 5 days after that
