Good Monday morning,

The best way to start the new week is to look at Lake Cachuma from an airplane.


thanks, Bro, what a great site, from a puddle to a full lake.
Now this week’s weather, it is going to be a very interesting week.

Today not a lot of excitement, just a calm day and likely the only calm day of the week.

Tuesday the wild weather begins. The next is a very cold system that arrives with 2 punches. first is the wind, and it will be wild. 35 to 45 miles an hour Tuesday night. 65 to 70 miles an hour over Ventura and LA.

Winds die sometime on Wednesday and then we welcome the bitterly cold weather. It will be 10 to 20 degrees below normal. The forecast shows a 40% chance of snow on the grapevine and showering anywhere…. still some wind and highs will only get into the 50s.

Thursday through Sunday the weather really becomes interesting. snow levels look to drop to 1000 to 1500 feet. That means snow almost anywhere.

The new twist to the forecast is the low-pressure system is now looking to be over the water. This will or can substantially increase the chances of lots of rain.

If this scenario continues, we are looking at rain through the weekend and in the amount of 2 to 5 inches. Yes, that’s quite a storm. This is still a little early to break out the snow gear, but we will need to watch if the models continue to follow this pathway.

In the meantime, calm today, with lots of wind Tuesday and Tuesday night, followed by moderate wind and showers Wednesday. after that STAY TUNED …

It might get really interesting
