Friday Forecast

Good Friday morning,

What a wild Thursday it was. The last storm system is gone now, but it brought us everything Mother Nature has.

We had almost 2 inches along the coast, 3 inches in Montecito, and 5 inches on the pass.

There was also thunder, lighting, and down pours with crazy winds.

The good news is the down pours lasted for 15 minutes or less, so the creeks could handel it.

This is good news for Montecito, as you might be able to sleep better in rain storms. This was a good test.

Skies have cleared and today will be dry.

Another system will bring light rain on Saturday. This will be very weak with north flow, so there is no moisture to tap into. Rain totals will be less than 1/4 inch.

Sunday through Tuesday will remain dry, with a weak ridge in place.

Wednesday into Thursday, the next rain event arrives.

It is too early to call, but this might be a decent soaker. Models and timing vary at this point.

One has rain Wednesday and heavier rain, the other has it Thursday and lighter.

All the facts will come into play by Monday.

In the meantime, have a good weekend.

We will update Sunday.
