Good Wednesday morning,

What a wild day on Tuesday, especially if you lived to the South.

A cut off low pressure system rolled though in the morning and actually brought a few sprinkles to Santa Barbara, then some afternoon winds.

The real Action was to the South, Ventura to LA. It started out with fog, then a strong Santa Ana wind event occurred.

The winds were clocked at 91 miles an hour in the Ventura hills.

This was one of the strongest Santa Ana events in the past 20 years. Then there were some rain showers later in the day.

The low is now parked over Baja, just spinning and keeping the off shore winds going. All rain is south of the area now.

Today will be windy still, ventura and south, but winds will be less and die down later in the afternoon.

Today we will have a cooler day in SB, but no real excitement.

Thursday, a weak ridge rolls in for the day. It will warm us up some.

Friday still nice, but Friday night we are looking at a low from the north dropping south. This will bring rain to central California, and maybe Santa Ynez.

2 models are calling for dry weather in SB and south, with one calling for rain and a more westerly flow. We will watch and see what happens.

Saturday another chance for rain, but models are still not clear. We will know better on Thursday.

Sunday looks dry, as a weak ridge drops over us.

Next week we are looking at a better chance of rain Monday and Tuesday. Everyone should get some rain.

Have a great day,

Jack Martin
