Good Wednesday morning, 

The burning question of the day, will we see any rain from the tropical system floating in the pacific? Let’s start by talking about this. You can see it spinning 350 miles southwest of LA. It is starting to pump moisture up from the south towards us. 
(You can see it in the loop below)

Moisture in the clouds will increase through the day today and we can see some rain possibilities later this evening and best chance Thursday morning. 

Now let’s not get to worked up over this, because the atmosphere is very dry at lower levels, rain that comes from the cloud base will evaporate before it hits the ground in many cases. So what does this all mean to us? 
20% chance of rain later tonight, and best chance Thursday morning. How much? 
Basically 1/4 of an inch or less. Now don't get me wrong, there is a chance for thunder showers, and where the rain could be much heavier, especially in some mountain areas, mainly to the south. 

Rain chance drop way off the further north you go. Rain chances will likely stop at Santa Ynez. 

Beyond the rain. Humidity will increase, but temps will drop. We will actually see cooler temps the next few days especially in the valleys and interiors. 

For the weekend, Friday some left over moisture, but rain chances mostly go away. 

The weekend will be in the 70s to 90s depending on where you live. 

Overall a nice weekend, not as hot as it has been.

Next week a little warm up, nothing crazy adding 3 to 5  degrees to the air.

In the mean time, enjoy the tropical vacation coming to us. You don't need to go to Hawaii, or Mexico. Their weather is coming to us through our nice and cool Pacific Ocean, which is a nice 65 degrees today. 

Have a great day,

Jack Martin
