What a day we had Sunday. Just incredibly Hot with records broken everywhere.

My house just off Las Positas hit a high of 103 degrees, but that’s not the strangest part.

We went to Hendry’s beach for dinner at the Boathouse. The sunset was great. It cooled off to a nice 70 there, but when I got home at 9 pm, 1 mile away it was 96 degrees due to the sundowner winds. The craziest spot was Gaviota that got to 120 degrees at 9pm.


The record breaking heat hit everywhere. The Santa Ynez valley got to 119, with one unofficial reading of 122 degrees, that’s nuts.

Today we will still see one more day of heat, but temps will drop off in all areas thanks to onshore winds that will come up in the afternoon.

Still with that we will still see mid 90s in Santa Barbara and valleys around 100.

Clear out there today 72 at my house and 85 at Gaviota


Tuesday we will cool off more and we will have manageable warmth, with high in SB around 86 and valleys the low 90s.

Wednesday is going to be interesting, because they are predicting the first Santa Ana wind event of the season.

That means Ventura to LA will see off shore winds and dangerous fire weather. This will persist Wednesday and Thursday.

Bringing Hot winds and very dry air. This will not affect Santa Barbara, but it will likely raise temps at times.

The weekend will come quickly this week because of the holiday. It looks like the warm weather will continue, but remain manageable.

One more day of heat, enjoy the beach. Yes I said the beach… it looks like the County and city gave up on trying to keep people off the beaches

Saturday they tried to keep people moving and not sitting, but Sunday they allowed it and rightfully so. It was just too hot for all to hang out at there homes.

The ocean temps is a nice 66 degrees cooling you off. Low tide is now at 8 pm tonight. High tide is 1:42 Pm today.

Stay cool, hang in there, the worst is over.
