Good Monday morning,

No report Sunday, because my email server took the day off and it was not allowing me to send the report.

Hopefully it will work now. This is the new G-suite email.

I have been up for a while, waiting to read the 3:30 am discussions. They are out now so here we go.

Today will be wet, if you are awake at 4:14 am like me, the rain is starting up now.

Today we will see rain through the day. It will rain into tonight. Rain rates will be a moderate .25 to .50 per hour. No threat to anyone.

We have good south flow, so Santa Barbara will see greater rainfall then other areas. You can see the low just spinning counter clockwise off shore.

Santa Barbara will see 1 to 1.5 inches of rain today over a 12 hour period. The mountains of SB will see up to 3 inches.

Other areas will see .50 to 1 inch with todays rain.

Tuesday, another round of rain. This will pull in some subtropical moisture. Rain rates with this system can be ½ to 1 inch per hour.

This will be a showery pattern. With spurts of rain.  Another 1 to 2 inches of rain.

Wednesday will be a dry day, but rain will be back over night on Wednesday into Thursday.

Thursday will be the wettest of the systems in the past week. Also cause greater rain totals. Flooding is likely in areas.

All in all, it has been a very wet 7 day period. Friday through Thursday we will likely see 4 to 10 inches of rain.

The good news is, it looks like we will get a break from the rain starting Friday throughout the weekend.

It will be time for a break !!!  Until then, lots of rain.
