Good Wednesday morning,

The rain is falling right on time. Started up fairly heavy at 3:30 am.

From fires to rain and likely some flooding is the story line for the thanksgiving week.

The firemen, bombers, planes and helicopters did a great job on the fire yesterday.

Mother Nature will help out today and Thursday.

What should we expect?

Rain is going to fall fairly heavy for a 2 to 3 hour period.

We are expecting 1/2 to 1 inch costal and 1 1/2 on south facing Santa Barbara mountains and freshly burned areas.

Rain will taper to showers this afternoon. Showers will continue through Thursday.

It looks like Thursday morning, a fresh batch of rain will give us a 3 to 4 hour of heavier rain.

This will also bring in the cold air with snow in the mountains. 

Friday and Saturday day, look to be dry. 

Saturday night through Wednesday is just not clear. Models all are different for the period.

They do agree that rain will start up Saturday late in the day in SLO and western Santa Barbara county.

This will be heavier rain and good totals.

The million dollar question is how far south this will go. Models think SB will get some for sure.

Then next week models show rain moving north or south. They can’t decide right now.

Long term models are even calling for heavy rain next Wednesday.

This is too far out to know.

What we do know is the rain is coming down now and south winds are blowing. 50 miles an hour in the mountains.

It will be an interesting 36 hours and we will see how we hold up.

Here it is from the sky:


Enjoy, we will be getting wet at Action Roofing covering lots of roofs today.
