OMG, what a day yesterday. Just increasable rain totals, but look at this result Lake Cachuma is at 66.7% and filling fast Dashboard (cosbpw.net) which is just amazing!

Look at these amazing rain totals for 24 hours, yes, a 1-day period. Montecito 7.5 inches, Santa Barbara 6 inches, San Marcos pass 14.60. just crazy …..

https://www.wrh.noaa.gov/lox/scripts/getlocal.php?prod=LAXRRMSBA  SB crushed the totals in SLO but still amazing totals https://www.wrh.noaa.gov/lox/scripts/getlocal.php?prod=LAXRRMSLO

The rain stopped last night so we could all get a few hours of sleep. Today we will see round 2 starts up. round 2 is the core of the low.

This will bring heavy rain, wind, thunder, lightning, and waterspouts or small tornados. This does not have the subtropical atmospheric river, which has shifted to the south. There will still be plenty of Action today with a few more inches of rain to fall, and more on south-facing mountains. As I type the rain is starting again right now.

The rain will end by tonight. then we will have 3 dry days to attempt to recover. more rain Saturday, then another system on Monday of next week.

when will it stop, well at this point not until lake Cachuma is overflowing, yes overflowing !!!. how many years has it been since the lake was full?

Holy Moly this has been historical, even the 1998 El Nino year was not this crazy!

Hwy 154 will remain closed for some time. Be careful out there.

Action Trucks will be filling the streets soon, trying to stop leaky roofs, windows, walls, and decks.

It is dumping at my house again right now 5:10 am

Stay dry.
