Good Friday morning,

Today a little wind and a few showers in areas. Last night the rain was really from Santa Ynez and to the north. For us in SB just some wind.

Most systems that move from north to south do not give Santa Barbara much rain, Because the mountain block the clouds.

This will be the case as we have 2 more weak systems that will affect us in the next 4 days . 

We should be dry today, Saturday and Sunday during the day. 

Sunday night the next weak, north to south system rolls in. 

This will not do much. 1/10 to 1/4 inch of rain in most area. Santa Barbara May see no rain. 

Tuesday another system flows in north to south. This is also weak and should not do more then give us wind.

Wednesday looks like high pressure build in and a ridge will keep rain away for the rest of the week .

Bottom line, it looks like we are looking at a relatively dry week of the 10th of March. 

We are more than happy to see that. 

Each day is really getting longer. From the start to the end of each day. Sunset is now approaching 6 pm and sunrise is in the 5am hour. 

Don’t forget daylight savings Saturday night. Turn you clocks ahead. 

Where day light will not start until 6:40 am we will have sunlight until 7pm.

Enjoy the changing season, we all have earned this one. 

Now for the exciting news…. Cachuma is going to top the 70% mark today … 69.8% right now.
