Good Monday morning, 

The first Monday in March and the finish of the first storm in March with some impressive numbers to start the month. 

Today we will see some wind, but really no rain here, a few spotty showers on north facing mountains. More wind in SB this afternoon and tonight from the northwest just like last night. It looks like 2  dry days before the next storm arrives Wednesday. 
This is 1100 mile west of SF right now... https://zoom.earth/maps/satellite/#view=39.7,-117.2,4z/date=2024-03-04,00:30,-8

It will slowly move towards us, but this one is a little more unpredictable. Models are not sure of the exact track and it might become a cut off low. 

Regardless it looks like rain Wednesday and Wednesday night. 1/4 to 3/4 of an inch. Then clearing Thursday and into the weekend, with nice weather on tap.
Hopefully we will start to see a dry pattern after Wednesday's storm. 

It has been an incredible year to date for rainfall especially in the Santa Barbara and montecito area. Santa Barbara is at 141% above rainfall for the entire year, and it is only  March. 189% for the year to-date and we are not done yet.

Ok that’s the Monday update, enjoy a few days of dry weather.

Thank you! The new downspouts have completely stopped the drumming of drips when it rains!
