Good Thursday morning, 

What a great day we had on Wednesday with a high in Santa Barbara of 83 and 87 in Santa Ynez. 

Today will be no different. Highs today will actually be warmer than Wednesday.

It will also feel more tropical as a former tropical storm in Mexico drifts over us.

You can see the 2 systems north and south that are drifting our way: 

If you walk outside you can feel it is starting out warmer. This will bring us 80s and 90s for all today. 

Right on the heels of the warmth is a cold low pressure system. This is due to arrive Friday. What will happen in 80s and 90s for highs will change to 60s.

Just like the Election going back and forth, so is our forecast for rain chances.

It is now looking like we will see a better chance for some light rain occurring over night Friday into Saturday.

The greatest chance will be from Santa Ynez to the north. Rain is likely there with around 1/4 of an inch falling overnight and Saturday morning.

For Santa Barbara, the percentage has jumped to 40% durning the same period. Rain totals will be less in both Santa Barbara and Ventura. 

It will also remain chilly through the weekend with highs in the low 60s. Chillier nights especially in the valleys where lows will be near freezing. 

Sunday, another and second low approaches, bringing back another chance of rain. This low will move more inland with less moisture, so mountain rain is likely and little elsewhere.

Next week, we will have a little warm up but still below normal temps.

“Fun Fact,” Downtown LA has been 70 degrees or warmer for 200 straight days and this will end Sunday.

Enjoy the great weather today, then the first rain of the season over night Friday into Saturday.  

Don’t expect a lot, but we will see some likely.
