Good Friday morning,

Quite a change is the weather today from Thursday, with temps a lot cooler today. Temps will dip 10 to 20 degrees from Thursdays highs.

Last night was fantastic outside until the cooler air arrived Thursday night. We went to Solvang theater fest which I have not been to for many years.

It was really a great very small venue with every seat being fantastic. We saw Jimmy Messina, and Pablo Cruz, it was just a great show. Jimmy was the best. Playing a lot of music that you expect from Kenny Loggins. The venue was like a mini-SB county bowl holding maybe 600 to 800 people.

I highly recommend it if you have not been there in along time or never, it was well worth the late night. 

Onto the weather, as mentioned earlier, quite a bit cooler today. Highs will only be in the 60s, low clouds and some fog to start the day, with a few pockets of drizzle.

This afternoon the system moves closer https://zoom.earth/ with rain starting tonight and overnight. Rain will start out light overnight, but as we get into Saturday it will get much wetter.
Looks like 1/4 inch over night tonight. Saturday 3/4 of an inch and rain stops Saturday night, with showers and another 1/4-inch Sunday. Overall a good rain with 1 to 2 inches in total.

Saturday will be quite windy in SB with south winds at 20 to 30 miles an hour. Highs will only be in the 50s for the weekend. Snow level starts out at 6000 feet and drops to 4000 feet Sunday.

Sunday will be one of those days with cold air and thundershowers possible. It will be spotty rain. Hopefully, nothing like the last storm that brought that crazy rain in Montecito.

Good news for next week, we clear out the storm and start a gradual warm up. Highs will get into the 80s by Wednesday, then cool slightly Thursday. It looks like a dry week ahead.

When will this rain end? The wet weather just continues. I am very ready to put a close to this wet season.

It will be a very wet Saturday, so outdoor plans are not looking good, besides that it will be very chilly all weekend.

Let's make the best of it, sunny and warmer days will arrive one of these days 😊

Jack Martin

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