Good Tuesday morning, 

It will be cooler today with highs in the mid-60s. This is thanks to the return of onshore flow and some pockets of fog in areas today.

The onshore flow will be short-lived because another Santa Ana wind event will start up again tonight. Offshore winds will blow through mid-day Wednesday and keep us all warm through Thursday. Highs in the low to mid-70s.

Friday and Saturday a return to onshore and cooler mid-60s again.

Good Friday morning, 

What a fantastic day Thursday was in Santa Barbara. It is so nice to feel the sun warming the skin.

If you feel the same, you will like this forecast 

Today we have a dry inside slider rolling down the interior with cold air. This means inland temps will remain normal, but coastal areas and valleys will be above normal. 

Highs today in the upper 60s. Just look at that big whip pumping the storms up, over, and down the interior.

Tonight and Saturday another strong Santa Ana wind event. Wind gusts could be as high as 80 miles an hour on some mountain tops near LA, normal wind-prone areas Ventura to LA will see 40 to 60 mile an hour winds tonight and Saturday.

This will compress the air and warm it, as most Santa Ana events do. Highs Saturday and Sunday will be in the low to mid-70s with lots of sunshine.

Good Wednesday morning, 

Another week and month marching by.

The next week is dominated by dry weather, warmer Santa Ana winds.

Today a few low clouds to start the day, but any areas with clouds will disappear quickly as the offshore flow begins.

Thursday the offshore kicks in at its normal spots. Ventura to Santa Monica will experience 35 to 45 mile an hour offshore winds. As usual, the winds will compress and warm the air. Ventura south will warm 8 to 10 degrees. Santa Barbara has no wind and 4 to 8 degrees of warming.

Friday winds subside for 1 day, with little change in temp. A few degrees of cooling.

Saturday is another Strong Santa Ana event. This kicks up the winds to the south and heats the skies for all into the low to mid-70s. 

Sunday is another great day in Santa Barbara, winds settle in Ventura south.

Good Monday morning, 

A holiday for some, but for all, we have a little rain in the forecast. 

The cut-off low that has been spinning in the Pacific is now starting to move towards the coast. This will bring us some light rain after 10 am into this evening.

Not a lot maybe 1/10 of an inch, with a max of 1/4 of an inch. https://zoom.earth/

Today we have lots of action in the Pacific, but not a lot of effects here https://zoom.earth/

Good Wednesday morning,

 Where do I start today? High pressure will give us a day to remember. https://zoom.earth/

59 degrees at 4:30 am in January. The East coast is having record lows with high in the teens. 
If you live on the beach, you will hear the surf at 5:30 is a lot closer with a 5.3 high tide, however, we will be rewarded with a .02 low tide at 1:17 pm. 

You have my permission to take a late lunch and a beach walk 

Today will be a warm day. Hot for most especially for winter. Highs will be in the upper 70 to low 80s with offshore winds.

Good Tuesday morning, 

Wow, what a sunrise on Monday. It was spectacular!

Hopefully, it is a good day for you, and you staying away from Covid. It is another crazy surge after the holidays. If you are Covid free like me.  “That rhymes “ You are going to love the summer-like weather we will see for the next 3 days.
