Good Saturday morning, 

The chill continues. Waking up this morning in Santa Ynez, it is a chilly 30 degrees. Santa Barbara and Montecito, 42 degrees.

Any way you look at this, it's like a winter blast of cold. I know folks that live in the Midwest and east coast would laugh at me by saying this.

However us in Southern California are just not use to this cold.

Last night I was driving home from my office at around 5:30 and the sun was still up. We are gaining more day light each day.

One week from today, daylight savings is back. We gain an hour of day light in the evening.

That’s great news for all outdoor activities. Also, can you believe February is almost over.

Just 5 days until March the 1st. 

As far as the weather goes, we are dry through Tuesday and likely through Friday. 

Last night when I turned on the TV, they were talking about rain Tuesday night into Wednesday.

I said what!!. That was not in my forecast Friday ….

Well there is a slight chance for rain, but at this point it is not likely south of point conception.

Rain will likely stay Santa Ynez and north. Even there rain will be light.

Today through Tuesday looks to be nice weather. Sunny for the most part, but still cold with below normal temps. 

Tuesday night into Wednesday, a system in the pacific north west will drop southward.

This will bring some rain, but mainly north of point conception. 

Thursday and Friday will be nice, and it even looks like we will finally have a day with temps to normal.

It even looks like we may keep the streak of below normal temps for the entire month of February.

Not sure if there is any record there, but no global warming in February. 

Saturday looking out there in the long range, looks like another system, with a fair possibility of rain for all. 

Ok, that’s the story. Got this all done before 5 am. Ready to launch Saturday. 

Enjoy the weekend !
