Good Monday morning,

The rain is still falling and will continue till around noon. The center of the low-pressure system will be right over us around 10 am. https://zoom.earth/#view=34.28,-119.55,6z/map=live

The rain totals for this system have been fantastic, especially in the mountains. We are down to just some additional showers with not a lot more additional rain.

The rain total is looking great for the year to date, we are 165% of normal county-wide. Here is the complete list of the totals of the local lakes and rain to date.


We will see how the lake levels have risen after the update reported today at 8 am.

Right now we are looking for more showers to start up shortly. https://radar.weather.gov/station/KVBX/standard

The snow level is also down to 3500 feet, and it is quite chilly out there this morning at 43 at my house right now.

41 in Santa Ynez and big Pine 24 degrees with snow. The Santa Ynez mountains are getting snow right now. https://forecast.weather.gov/MapClick.php?x=187&y=100&site=lox&zmx=&zmy=&map_x=186&map_y=100

The rain totals have not changed that much since the heavy rain fell overnight Saturday, but Rocky Butte is SLO is at 9 inches with the lead for the most rain https://www.wrh.noaa.gov/lox/scripts/getlocal.php?prod=LAXRRMSBA

In the afternoon today, we are looking at dry conditions and chilly temps all week long. It looks like dry conditions the rest of the week with chilly nights and highs only in the 50s.

Next weekend we are looking at a chance for another system, but models have lowered the rain strength and rain totals. We will see how this plays out as the week continues.

In the meantime, it is wet and muddy out there, bring your rain gear, jacket, and galoshes.

Love the rain, keep it coming ….

Jack Martin

Thank you! The new downspouts have completely stopped the drumming of drips when it rains!
