Good Friday morning,

It is looking like a few more days of unsettled weather through Sunday. 

The 2 day rain totals were right on track with what was expected.

San Marcos Pass had over 3 inches, Montecito 1 1/2, SB received an inch, and Patty in Santa Ynez also saw an inch of rain. 

Today a colder system will bring light showers to the area.

Looking like the greatest chance of rain is this afternoon as the low over Oregon drops into California this afternoon.

1/4 inch for SB, 1/2 inch for northern locations. Snow levels around 5000 feet.

There are some showers approaching the central coast as you read this:

Saturday will be chilly, but mostly dry. Snow levels will be 3500 feet.

For my granddaughters first birthday party outdoors in Solvang, we will need to dress in winter clothes. 

Sunday!! Look out. This is going to be extremely interesting to watch.

Not so much for rain, but expect snow and cold temps. Snow levels will drop to 1500 to 2000 feet.

Temps in the valleys and patty’s house will be in the teens Sunday night. Coastal areas even the 30s are likely. 

There will also be some rain and snow showers. The Pass will see snow in areas. 

Monday will be a great day to wake up and look into the hills over San Marcos Pass.

We will likely see a rare white in our hills. Brett and Adam get your cameras ready. 

Next week is going to be another very cold week. Looks like mostly dry, but cold.

Another storm system will approach late in the week, but it appears to be on the lighter side. 

If you are traveling on the Interstate 5 Sunday, you might get stuck. Snow there is likely. 

Have a nice weekend, it will be cold and wintery Sunday with snow down to 1500 feet.
