This morning is noticeably warm at 49 degrees in Santa Barbara, but still a chilly 36 degrees in Santa Ynez.

Ventura, you are waking to a little wind as Santa Ana winds are blowing slightly. 

Today will be the warmest day of the next 7. Heights are going to be in the upper 60s and low 70s.

Some high clouds will stream over us today, but overall a nice day.

Saturday will be dry, but low pressure will begin to enter. The off shore flow will shift to on shore. 

Sunday, we now have a good picture for the arrival of the rain. Rain will occur starting in SLO then work it's way south.

SLO will see rain in early morning hours and Santa Barbara later in the morning. Ventura and south around noon. 

South facing mountains over Santa Barbara will see the greatest rain well around 1 inch likely. Other locations around 1/2 to 1 inch. 

Rain rates will not be a worry, only brief periods of heavier showers. Rain will fall into Sunday night. 

Monday the low still hangs around, but most of the shower activity will be over Ventura to LA.

We will see some Action, but minimal rain. 

Moving into the extended forecast. Tuesday Christmas Eve day looks to be fairly dry.  Still a slight chance of showers.

Christmas Day and beyond, the models are still not in great agreement, but rain is looking more likely late Christmas Day into Thursday.

As mentioned yesterday, I believe we will see more rain on Thursday. A few more days and we will have a clear picture.

In the mean time, get your shopping done Saturday, because rain will dampen your day Sunday. 

Also the count down is on, 5 days till Christmas.

Have a great day and weekend.
