Good Saturday morning, 

If you’re waking up in the Santa Ynez valley. It is a cold 41 degrees...
in Santa Barbara a chilly 54 degrees. 

The weather this next week is all about the Santa Ana winds. As high pressure will keep everyone chilly at night and it will warm up into the mid 70s coastal to mid 80s in the valleys.


Look at these swings in Santa Ynez where lows around 40 at night will change to 80s during the day. That’s easy math of 40 degree swings. 

Flying further south to Santa Ana county. It is all about the winds. You are looking at on and off Santa Ana conditions with wind gust of 65 miles an hour Sunday and Monday. 

High pressure and Santa Ana conditions will be the forecast for the entire next week, which translates into cold mornings and warm afternoons. This is very typical for this time of year, when Santa Ana conditions affect us spring and fall. 

Speaking of fall, Nov 5th we turn the clocks back and we get one fewer hours of daylight in the evening. Darkness will be setting in by 5:30 pm for the next 3 months. 

If you’re an early person like me, darkness hangs on till after 7am right now. That will change next Sunday where 6ish we will see daylight. If you’re a night owl you might want to start your days earlier if you like the sun and daylight. 

Current sunrise and sunset today  in Santa Barbara, California: October 28
7:15 AM & 6:09 PM
That’s less then 11 hours of daylight!

Since we are looking at all the seasonal facts. The current ocean temp is 63 degrees, wetsuit weather unless you are visiting from somewhere else and you don’t care … or have a wetsuit. 

Ok that’s it for the day, a longer report this morning to make up for the lack of reports during the week. Sometimes my day job makes me skip the report, but today it will be an easier day without many employees. 

Have a great weekend and enjoy the fall weather. A jacket or sweatshirt is required this morning.
