Thanksgiving Forecast

Good Chilly Thanksgiving Day Morning, 

I slept in till 5am. That’s a treat…

Chilly, wet and rainy is our Thanksgiving Day forecast.

Starting out the day it is in the low 40s in Santa Barbara and 35 degrees in Santa Ynez.

Snow level is at 2500 feet with 6 inches of snow on the Grape vine.

The only good to that is 1 lane is open to traffic.

This really is a classic Thanksgiving day in Southern California, experiencing what most of the country sees in this day.

We get to live it this year, like all the others. 

The low pressure system moving through has lots of cold air and showers with it.

Showers will continue throughout the morning, then taper in the afternoon.

Shower chances continue throughout the day and into the first half of Friday.

However, as it gets later in the day the chances are being reduced.

LA however, will have a wet day. Rain totals there will be higher than ours.

Here are our rain total through the storm, everyone has seen 1 to 2 inches.

Here is how it looks on the satellite:

Moving into the weekend, we will see dry cold weather Friday and Saturday.

Saturday night and through Wednesday, we will see rain at times.

The difficulty with this next system is when, how much and where the rain will fall. 

They will figure this out by Saturday morning, but for now....rain will occur in SLO and Santa Barbara counties Saturday night through Sunday. Rain totals are still not clear.

Models show rain, but differ, one shows a lot of rain. LA should see nothing.

Monday through Wednesday is still not clear also. It does look like everyone will see rain Wednesday next week including LA.

This will be a warmer system. Snow level will rise to resort levels.

A lot of words for Thanksgiving Day. Enjoy family and friends today.

We should all be thankful for what we do have. I know I love my life, friends, family and of course Santa Barbara.

Have a great Thanksgiving day!
