Jack's Weather Report


By Jack Martin on Oct 08, 2020 at 03:33 PM

Good Thursday morning, 

Cool air and fog is the forecast for the day. All valleys will see fog as the daylight arrives. Also, it will be a welcome to cooler days through Friday. 


Today we are looking at low 70s coastal and low 80s in the valleys with the marine layer at 2500 feet. Fog will be with us into the afternoon.

Good Wednesday morning,

The cool down will continue through the end of the week for all, then a big warm up next week as Santa Ana winds redevelop.

Today the marine layer is creeping into the valleys. This will finally start to cool the Santa Ynez Valley will highs today in the lower 80s.

Here in Santa Barbara we will cool more, with highs around 75.

Good Tuesday morning,

It is really great for me to start each forecast with the date. It makes me think about what this date represents.

Today, Happy Birthday to my Daughter Christine 😀

The weather today will be very much like Monday. We are starting off with dampness along the coast with today’s highs slightly less in SB then Monday.

Highs around 78 degrees. Valleys will still be warm with upper 80s, but a little cooler.

Good Monday Morning,

Today at my house we are starting out with dampness and drizzle. It is wet out there for some coastal locations. My camera even spotted a raccoon on my steps this morning.  


Today we find some low clouds and drizzle along the coast and high clouds from former hurricane Marie. This is really not going to do much to our weather, just a tropical look.

Good Wednesday morning, 

Lots going on in the news, but the weather will be as predicted in the past week.

Today is the last day of the month and Thursday brings us the full Harvest moon. This will be able to be seen by all since there will be no fog Thursday morning.

Rise early and check it out. Attached is what it looked like this morning at 4:30am.

Good Tuesday morning,

If you are waking in Santa Barbara, you see quite a bit of fog. The fog, however, is 500 to 800 feet thick today so a faster burn off is likely. 

If your in the valleys, get ready for very hot temps with upper 90s for you over the next 4 days:


In Santa Barbara a warm up is happening, but not as much due to the fog. Low 80s for us today.

Tonight, however, some light sundowner winds will make the coast clear on Wednesday morning.

Good Monday morning, 

The start of the work week and a hot week is the story. This morning it is warm at my house, with fog prevailing.


The marine layer is 2000 feet thick in areas. As advertised yesterday, the Santa Ana wind will pick up today.

Good Friday morning, 

The power outage yesterday delayed the Thursday weather till 5 pm, but was written at 5 am.

Hopefully you will get it on time today 🤔

What a perfect night on Thursday. Perfectly calm winds and warm. It was great sitting on the deck watching a great game between the Lakers and Denver.

With Laker prevailed, after a great game. Denver made it exciting, game 5 Saturday night, 3-1 Lakers.

Good Thursday morning, 

There is not much of a change since Wednesday’s forecast. We will do a quick update.

A weak low pressure system is sweeping down from the northwest. This really is not going to affect us much. A few degrees of cooling through Friday.

Good Wednesday morning, 

Happy Equinox day. This comes spring and fall every year. 12 hours of day light and 12 hours of darkness.

Winter months are lurking in our future, however, you are not going to know this over the next 7 days.
