Good Monday morning,

So much for the forecast of a dry week. 

Take a look, there is lots of Action that will begin to affect Northern California tonight. 

You can see the spinning low. It is also pulling the subtropical moisture from Hawaii into Northern California.

Rain is back in the forecast for Tuesday night on the central coast. Then sagging south on Wednesday affecting us. 

The Tuesday night through Wednesday night system is going be felt the most over the central coast.

They will see 1/2 to 3/4 of a inch. Northwest foothills can see 1 1/2 inches.

For us locally, Santa Barbara will se 1/4 to 1/2 inch. Ventura south 1/10 to 1/4.

Thursday, possible a few light showers, then sunny.

Friday will be dry, with a weak ridge popping over us.

Saturday the wet weather is back. Exact timing is unclear, but it is looking like the AR. 

Atmospheric river will be over central and Southern California.

If models are correct, this will bring us heavy rain, with south winds. Santa Barbara will get the most. 

Rain chances are through the weekend. 

We will give the national weather service a few days to determine how much we will see. 

It can be significant. 

Enjoy 2 dry days, with just some high clouds. Then rain arrives.

Let’s Fill that Lake....
