Good Wednesday morning,

This morning it is clear and cold out there. I had to turn my heater back on this morning.

It certainly does not look like rain right now, but It is coming. The cutoff low has just been spinning for days with very little movement.

https://zoom.earth/ It does look like most of the rain will hold off till later in the day. Tonight into Thursday morning RAIN “finally.”

Around ½ to 1 inch coastal, 1 to 2 inches in the mountains. Snow level 4000 to 6000 feet and as low as 3500 feet. Higher elevations up to 12 inches of snow in May.

The amazing part about the snow this season is there is still 80% of the snow at resort levels that has not melted. Water supplies will just continue, well into the summer.

When will the rain chances end, well cut off lows have a mind of their own and are a weather mans wows.... or better analogy is like a 2-year-old, you never know where they will go.

It does look like rain showers can continue into Friday and possibly Saturday. The rain will be very showery , but it may not move out until Saturday morning.

Looks like Friday night Santa Barbara can get a good blast of northwest winds due to pressure gradience. The weekend will warm slightly with 60s for highs, but rain is out of the picture.

Next week , we are dry, and warming back into the 70s . The storm system we experienced will drift across the country making havoc for others.

Enjoy the rain, trust me it is coming... summer will come I promise.
