Good Wednesday morning,

The calm before the storm, Today we will see dry weather with cooler temps. Highs in the upper 50s to low 60s. This is about 8 to 12 degrees below normal.

Did you know this has been the coldest winter in 50 years?

Thursday will be relatively dry with the rain chances not showing up here until Thursday night. Here is how it looks from the sky. https://zoom.earth/

On Thursday morning you will really start to see the development of this system. It will be crazy when the atmospheric river affects the areas.

This will be more to the north than to the south. Areas Morro Bay and north with see 4 to 8 inches of rain “yes that’s what the weather service is saying, coastal and foothills.”

Rain In SB will start up Thursday night lighter to moderate to start. Friday will be a washout in the words of the National weather service. Rain will be heavy in all locations point conception and to the north. Expect 2 to 4 inches in the Santa Barbara area, and possibly more in Santa Ynez. The AR river will move through Friday evening and then turn to showers.

It looks like a little rain Saturday, but the event will be over through Monday.

Tuesday the next system, models agree this will bring more rain and likely another 1 to 2 inches.

Wow, are we getting tired of the rain “ I am” . If you do believe the extended forecast, then we will see dry weather after the second system goes through.

Batten down the hatches once again, some flooding is possible. The snow level will be 10,000 feet, but the good news is the least rain will fall in the snow areas.

LA will see the least rain from the next system with ½ to 1 ½ inches.  Enjoy the fun or whatever we call it …..
