Weekend Weather

Good Friday morning All,

I started my morning quite early, but the funny reading for me is how the national weather service labeled the title page.

HIGH FIRE DANGER   http://www.weather.gov/lox/  MY FIRST THOUGHT WAS !! What is left that can burn ??

Bottom line is, the Santa Ana winds are back.  Here we are round 3 of these winds, this week alone!! Today its Ventura and souths time for the winds to blow. Santa Barbara had there wind yesterday.

The valleys of Ojai and Santa Ynez are quite cold this morning and will be Saturday morning as well. However, once the sun comes out we will warm up nicely. A matter of fact, we will warm up each day. As discussed yesterday, we will warm up each day.

Sunday will be a chamber of commerce day in Santa Barbara. Not a lot more to say about the weather.

Its looking like we will be dry through Thursday or the rest of January . February will be upon us next week.

I know we have not talk much about that 4-letter word “Rain” but we really need some. Not all in one hour, but let’s hope for some in February. This is the last month that we typically get a lot of rain.

This will be the next topic on the news. From the flood areas, We are taking more baby steps to return people to their homes. It looks like all of San Ysidro area to East Valley Road is open now. One item to note… Take a look at all the rectangle boxes on the map.

They are all the bridges that are destroyed or have major damage

I was in south Montecito and Toro Canyon area yesterday. This is the first time I have been inside the area. The damage is amazing, especially where creeks were. Toro creek area is crazy and did not get hit as hard as the other areas. As I drove up Toro Canyon and went to East valley Rd right at the creek. The area is wide open now. No more trees there. Just boulders in and around the creeks.

Ok that's it for today. Hopefully more people will get back into homes in those areas.

Have a nice weekend,

Jack Martin
