Good Tuesday morning,

If you are waking in Santa Barbara, you see quite a bit of fog. The fog, however, is 500 to 800 feet thick today so a faster burn off is likely. 

If your in the valleys, get ready for very hot temps with upper 90s for you over the next 4 days:

In Santa Barbara a warm up is happening, but not as much due to the fog. Low 80s for us today.

Tonight, however, some light sundowner winds will make the coast clear on Wednesday morning.

Good Friday morning, 

The weekend is nearing, which is always more relaxing than the work week.

Today we are starting out with warmer mornings due to Karina throwing mid to high clouds over us, and pushing the smoke East.

Good Thursday Morning,

Yes, I got up way too early this morning . “ If bars were open, I got up before last call “ I am going to need a nap today.

Today I have good news with the smoke. Karina is arriving and pushing all the smoke to the East.

There is also another system moving into the Pacific northwest that will douse the fires there.
