Good Sunday morning, 

Rain is on the way, you will have till around 2 pm, before dry turns to wet.

Low pressure is still 350 miles off point conception, so rain will stay away until the afternoon for Santa Barbara.

Rain in north county will start earlier, likely by noon.

Here it is on the satellite: 

This system is bringing us good south winds that will enhance rain over the Santa Barbara hills.

Here is the current radar. You can see the rotation from the south: https://www.wrh.noaa.gov/lox/scripts/animate.php?root=radar_cr&list=VBX_7.png,VBX_6.png,VBX_5.png,VBX_4.png,VBX_3.png,VBX_2.png,VBX_1.png,VBX_0.png

We are still looking at 1/2 inch to 1 inch coastal and 1 to 2 inches in the hills.

Rain will occur for a 12 hour period, but Monday now looks to be dryer.

Maybe a little rain Monday night as another ripple moves in. 

Tuesday will be dry.

Wednesday and Thursday, another system will cause more rain. This will be more showery in nature with rain fall of 1/4 to 1/2 inch at this point.

Looking into the future, it now looks like late in the week will be dry.

An inside slider will bring wind and a chance for a little rain over the weekend. This is looking a ways out, so don’t count on this for anything at this point.

Enjoy the first half of the day outdoors. It was so cool at low tide at Hendry’s beach.

There must have been 500 people walking the beach over a 4 mile walkable stretch at low tide.

I rode my new Bike on the sand. It was super fun. Everyone should check it out.  

“ Oh no my secret spot is out now “ 😀

Have a great day!

Thank you for your prompt response. I am so grateful for what you did. All through the following rain storms I was thanking you. This is what, in my mind, is an incredible business response. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
