Good Thursday morning, 

Rain is on the way.

The low-pressure system to the north has a long counterclockwise rotation from Canada to the bay areas.

This will begin to sag south and rain will occur for all starting later in the afternoon for areas north of point conception.

Tonight in areas south of point conception (yes, that’s us). The models have even bumped up the rain totals a bit with 1/3 to 2/3 on the central coast and 1/4 to 1/3 for our area. South facing mountains in SB around 1/2 an inch, and on the central coast up to 1 1/4 of an inch. This is all good news because we will take what we can in late April. 

Friday the system clears out and the winds return. Another round of sundowner winds for Santa Barbara Friday night. 

Looking into the weekend, high pressure and offshore flow begin and a big warm-up will start Sunday into next week.

80s and some 90s are likely Sunday and Monday. We might even break some records on Monday. 

Tuesday starts a cooling trend with some low clouds and fog as onshore flow builds back in.

Dry weather through next week and likely through the next 4 months until the monsoonal season starts. 

Enjoy the rain, it will likely be a while before we see it again
