First off….welcome to fall! How do we explain fall to friends outside of California the fall in Santa Barbara is not the traditional fall weather that others expect, with cooler temps and leaves falling from trees.
We should just call it wind, fire, heat or Santa Anna season.
What fall does do is make each weeks weather change from summer hot to cooler pattern. This first week of fall will show us just that.
Today and Friday it will be cooler with highs in the 70s, some wind, but not that much for us in SB.
Friday night it all changes, as the first Santa Anna event of the fall starts.
Ventura south get ready for heat and a lot of wind through Monday.
Santa Barbara will have no wind, just HOT. We will see 90s here.
Yes, beach weather !
I think September and October are the best months in SB. So enjoy!
Ventura -Oxnard and Santa Anna prone areas. It will be a good weekend to visit Santa Barbara. Or be indoors.....
