What an amazing Christmas day, I spent most of my day in Santa Ynez and went for a bike ride.

The unofficial high was 85 to 89 degrees in my truck. Regardless it was an Epic warm day on December 25th

Driving back to SB early this morning it was still 64 on the pass, but 52 in SB. https://zoom.earth/

Today will be overall nice, with high clouds starting the stream ahead of the storm system that will arrive Tuesday.

Today’s highs will be in the low 70s, cooling off from Christmas day. Tonight some cooling but no rain until Tuesday

Tuesday rain will start up North to south. It now looks like the rain will be delayed until later in the afternoon for Santa Barbara.

Rain will start up in SLO Monday morning, then work its way into Santa Ynez Tuesday afternoon, then to SB late afternoon.

This system has a weak atmospheric river with it, but more of a west–north flow. what does this mean?

More rain to the north in SLO and to Santa Ynez, and less rain as it goes around point conception. Don’t be discouraged it will still be a pretty good storm

SLO and northern Santa Barbara county will see 1 to 3 inches of rain. west-facing mountains up to 5 inches. SB will see 1 to 2 inches and up to 3 inches in the mountains

LA .5 to 1.5 inches overnight Tuesday. Wednesday maybe some showers, but for the most part dry. Thursday and Friday the pattern continues for a chance of rain.

it will be showery with some sun at the time. looking into the weekend it looks like a stronger system will move down the coast, bringing us another good system.

The bottom line we are moving into a wet pattern with on-and-off rain all week, turn off the sprinklers and enjoy the wet.

Enjoy the 70s today, they go away for a while.

Thanks for the nice job you did on my house. My tenant appreciated how considerate and efficient your team was and commented on the excellent job they did. My husband and I went up to inspect the job yesterday, and we were very pleased.
