Good Thursday morning, 

Are you ready for a big cool down? 

We have a few different systems to look at today and into the weekend. 

Let’s start with the low pressure system that drifted up from Arizona. This is spinning counter clockwise and sitting in place with little movement.

Very unusual for us to see this.

Now look to the north at the Canada boarder. There is a front pushing into Washington state. This will be the trigger for the big cool down. 

So what’s happening today.... 

We will see some mid to high clouds from the system to the southeast. You might not even see them where fog exists. 

It will be a much cooler day, especially in the valleys, where highs will be in the upper 70s down 15 degrees. Coastal we should remain in the low 70s. 

Tonight, the Marine layer thickens up and will produce a foggy damp morning overnight.

We will wake up to plenty of dampness Friday morning. Drizzle is possible.

Fog should stick around most of the day, with little to no clearing.

Friday night into Saturday morning, the marine layer should bring some drizzle and possible light rain. Saturday will be the coolest day, with highs from 65 to 75 degrees.

Fog will stick around most of the day until the front moves through. 

Behind the front northwest winds will bring up temps in Santa Barbara just in time for Rod Stewart at the bowl.

Some sundowner winds.... 

Sunday, we will transition into more seasonable weather, and Monday the fog should go away. 

Next week is looking non eventful at this point. More to come later. 

Enjoy!
