Good Tuesday morning,

The cold wind last night cleared out the marine layer, but it is chilly out there. Temps right now are in the upper 30s to upper 40s.

Today it will be cold with most areas only hitting the 50s. You can see the cut off low forming now with nice counterclockwise Action.


Rain is also on its way to us, likely arriving later in the afternoon. It is hard to believe that it is May, and we are looking at a classic low-pressure system like this.

This storm will spin counterclockwise then drop ever so slowly. The low-pressure system might even linger into Saturday with showers possible. Personally for us I think it will be gone by Friday.

This is also a system that is loved by the Santa Barbara mountains with enhance rain because of the south facing mountains. The rain over the next 3 days will be very showery in nature.

We are looking at .75 to 1.25 on south facing mountains, and .40 to .75 coastal and valleys. As for the weekend we are looking dry, but cooler with highs in the upper 60s. Next week rain chance goes away, and the forecast is dry.

Rain really will be Tuesday night through Wednesday night, any rain beyond that will be showery. I flew back form SF last night and the winds over the ocean were howling.

You can also see lake Cachuma on the first photo (zoom in and you will see it)

Rain is falling in SLO as we speak:  https://radar.weather.gov/station/KVBX/standard

Enjoy the rain, for one last time till late October (I think !!!)
