Good Monday morning,

The end of our rainy historical 4-week period is almost over, Just look at these results from lake Cachuma. There are tons of logs everywhere near the dam, but it is 89% full right now.

I don’t think anyone is fishing in that mucky water, but it is a beautiful site. It has been 12 years since it was full. That was a long time ago.

The storm yesterday rolled in a little faster than thought originally but has been a calm storm with only minimal rain. Results to this point are 1/2 to 2 inches.

Here are the rain totals for the past 48 hours, with another great result.

The Pass is over 4 inches, Montecito 3 inches.


Today the core of the Low is in the bay area, with them getting Hammered again. This will move south and give some heavier showers later in the day. mainly in SLO

It has been an incredible run for all of California in the past 4 weeks https://zoom.earth/#view=35.22,-118.95,6z/map=live

We will see showers today, with some on-and-off rain. However, the 4-week rain event is at the end with sunny skies starting Tuesday morning.

Rain today will be light with showers into the evening.

Tonight the snow levels drop to 3500 feet and rain comes to an end.

Overnight we will get some North winds and cool temps.

Tuesday sunny skies and cooler. Temps all weeks will remain below normal but begin to warm.

Wednesday is an inside slider, which means some winds and a chance of north showers. We will remain dry.

Friday high pressure and offshore winds will make for the first sunny and dry weekend since Christmas, almost a month in normally sunny California.

As of yesterday look at these rain totals for the year. 273% of normal and 109% of rainfall county-wide and it is still mid-January https://files.countyofsb.org/pwd/hydrology/Rainfall%20Reports/rainfallreport

Mike what is the wettest season in history, and how close are we? I will assume this has been the wettest first half of January.

One more day of wet, then we get to enjoy the sunshine again.

I know every parent of small kids will be celebrating the dry weather so they can get some of that energy out of their systems outdoors.

It was amazing to see how many people were walking in the rain yesterday.
