Typing in the dates in the subject line is interesting, it makes me think about history and dates.

Today, 36 years ago, was my first date with my wife.  I was a kid at 24 and she was 19. “How time flies. “

Weather for this date is going to be pleasant.

A cool start to the day in Santa Ynez at 36 degrees and the same chill in north county. A weak ridge will ride over us for the next 60 hours.

A little Northeast winds will affect Ventura, south later today and Friday. These winds will be lighter however. Nothing like earlier in the week.

 This will give us some warming, and some high clouds streaming over us.The temps will warm us up to the upper 60s for the day.

Friday will be the warmest day of the week. Highs might get to 70.

Saturday, the high pressure remains for the first half of the day, then breaks down as the next system rolls in.

This is in the Gulf of Alaska right now. You can see it on the satellite picture in the top left side, spinning.


This will start to affect our weather Saturday night or Sunday. This depends on which long range model you read.

One brings rain after midnight to SLO, the other holds it off to the morning.

The one consensus that they agree on is we will have rain sometime Sunday into Monday.

This will bring a good rain with early totals of 1/2 to 1 inch.

Forecast models continue to bring us different signals into the Christmas week.

One keeps the low hanging around with showers Monday and Tuesday. The other shows rain ending Monday.

The next system rolls in Christmas Day or Thursday. Again, models are not feeling the same on this right now.

My best guess is we will be in a wet pattern again and see at least a second system.

As we get closer to Christmas and the start of next week, we will sort this all out.

In the meantime, enjoy some great December weather and get ready for rain Sunday.

Have a great day.
