Good Sunday morning,

What a treat we had yesterday. Great weather. Warm sunny 😎 and perfect.  if you had the day off.

I drove to LA. It hit 87 degrees in the valley. Santa Barbara did hit the 80 degree mark also.

I even sat on my deck, watched TV, the Worriors played last night for the first time in long time.

Nice to extend the indoors back outside. 

Today will be pretty much the same as Saturday, but I get most of the day to enjoy the weather.

Highs will be in the upper 70s and some 80s.

The dome of high pressure is amazing to see on the satellite.

Take a look:

Nice weather will continue through Monday, highs in the low 70s. 

Tuesday, a weather system approaches. It looks like any rain will hold off until Tuesday night, or evening. 

Rain over night and showers on Wednesday. Looks like the main front Tuesday night will bring us 1/10 to 1/4 inch.

Then Wednesday shower can bring us another 1/4 inch. 

Nothing too exciting, just enough to keep the mountains very green.

“They are so pretty this time of year”. 

Thursday and Friday will be dry. 

Saturday another system approaches. Models now seem to be backing off the rain totals.

Rain may stay to the north of point conception. We will watch this as the week goes on. 

In the meantime, enjoy a perfect Sunday. 

Happy Saint Patties Day and Happy Birthday to my wife, Peggy Molloy. 

Now that’s Irish and born on this day.
