Jack's Weather Report

Good Friday morning, 

The weekend is almost upon us. It looks like we will have a chance for rain Sunday night into Monday as the first Pacific Northwest storm system is forming in Canada. This will dive south over the next few days and bring us a chance of rain Sunday night into Monday. This will not be a big system, but it will likely make it all the way through Santa Barbara and then die out before it gets to LA.  Not a big rain maker 1/4 of an inch in SB and maybe 1/3 on the central coast. 

This will be a one-and-done system and bring cooler weather for all. Yes, it appears fall is in the air and we will start to see some changes, especially as the valleys cool more at night.

Good Thursday morning,

I hope everyone is having a great week. Tonight we are in for a nice treat at sunset with the full moon.

This is the largest moon of 2022 and a supermoon called the sturgeon moon. https://video.foxnews.com/v/5664738472001#sp=show-clips

Last night we got a preview of the moon, which was spectacular.

I was at the beach with my granddaughter seeing it rise, it almost took up the entire Eastern skies.

Ed was on it last night also and got us a preview photo, but tonight is the night for the full moon.

Good Wednesday morning, 

Cooler weather is on tap for us through the week. 

It will feel more like June instead of late July. Not a lot of excitement in the next 3 days.

Temps will be slightly below normal with highs along the coast in the lower 70s, and inland valleys in the mid-80s.

Nights will cool nicely into the lower 60s. Just fantastic summer weather in my book.

Good Wednesday morning, 

Zoom earth is showing clear skies throughout the US except for a few areas. The entire west coast is clear except for some sub-tropical moisture trying to work its way up from Baja Mexico.

This should not affect us at all 

Today a shallow marine layer will burn off early and we will warm up into the 80s.

Thursday, a low-pressure system moves into the Pacific Northwest.

The only effect for us will be cooler coastal weather and a deeper marine layer. 

The weekend looks to be nice with cooler coastal temps high in the upper 70s, and valleys upper 80s.

Good Wednesday morning, 

It is good news for the valleys with the heat. Temps are dropping and will be cooling to the low to mid-80s for the weekend and into early next week.

Today will be the last hot day, with low 90s in Santa Ynez and upper 70s in Santa Barbara. 

Thursday, we start the real cool down in the valleys with a high of 85. Coastal areas will begin to see more fog and highs in the low to mid-70s.

This will be the forecast through the weekend, with fog along the coast and low 70s. In the valleys low 80s. 

At the start of next week, we will continue to see cooler weather as a late-season Pacific Northwest storm drops into their neck of the woods. Here just cooler with some fog 

Looking at zoom earth the hurricane season is getting active with a few systems on the East Coast and one on the west.

Good Wednesday morning,

This morning there is some subtropical moisture being pulled up thanks to low pressure spinning just south of point conception.

This has created some rain this morning in LA area and the chance for some rain will continue to move north.

Just to the south there is a 40% chance of rain, but here we will see a 20%.

As the heating of the day continues, we will see if the air becomes more unstable.

If areas see rain, it is not a lot. .01 to .25 of an inch, Not much.

The subtropical weather is more August like not June. The rain chances more East tonight.

Thursday, We get back into typical June like weather, with morning fog along the coast and sun in the afternoons.

This weekend expects more of the same, with fog along the coast in the mornings then sun and warming into the upper 70s to low 80s.

The valleys will be 10 degrees warmer with upper 80s to low 90s. just typical early summer weather.

Good Thursday morning,

Wow, Thursday came fast this week!!

I love this time of year with all the daylight. It is starting around 5 am now.

19 days till summer solstice and best of all we will have our fun parade back in Santa Barbara. I always love watching this parade.

Good Thursday morning, 

Fog and wet this morning. From my bird cam, you can see the dampness 


Looks like we will see damp mornings in the next 2 days as a weather system approaches the Pacific Northwest.

where they will see rain, and we get a marine layer 

Highs along the coast the next 2 days will be cooler in the upper 60s with limited clearing. 

In the valleys warmer in the mid to upper 70s.

Good Tuesday morning, 

Typical late May weather on tap. High pressure has built in, and the inland areas are heating up. 

The coastal areas are influenced by an Eddy near Catalina and are producing fog from LA to Santa Barbara.

This is a normal pattern for this time of year 

Easy forecast to type and understand.

Good Friday Morning

Good gloomy Friday, 

It is a damp start to the day, as the fog has created some areas with drizzle. Everywhere is cloudy and damp this morning, but I can’t define this as rain.


It is a heavy marine layer. Very typical of this time of year. As I mentioned yesterday, we are entering our next season. Sometimes defined as May-Gray, June-Gloom, and Pea soup. Since we are still in May for 12 more days, we will call it May-Gray. 

Today will be cool, damp, and foggy along the coast. Little to no clearing today. high of 55
