Jack's Weather Report

Good Monday morning,

Hope everyone had a nice holiday and made it home safe and dry.

Today we will see the Pineapple Express or atmospheric river sag south a little.

For the past 36 hours, it has been focused in Monterey area where some locations have seen 10 inches of rain.

Welcome to December, 30 more days before 2020. 

The rain yesterday was exactly as advertised, however it started up slightly earlier then originally forecast.

We saw light rain for an 8 to 10 hour period with everyone seeing 1/4 to 3/4 of a inch.

Turning our focus to current.

Good Saturday morning, 

Yes, just to make sure you know what day it is..... 

We are in a very interesting pattern with chances of rain for the next 7 days. 

You can see the low pressure system spinning off shore and pumping subtropical plume towards use.

This will create rain later in the day. The rain will not be heavy, but we are expecting 1/2 to 1/4 of an inch throughout the area tonight and into Sunday.

Good Friday Morning,

I hope everyone had a nice day off in the middle of the week. It was quite interesting weather for southern California. We typically don’t see snow and hail here.

Today as I woke up, I had to think about what day it is. “For me a work day”.

For all those Crazy people that are going shopping, you better dress warm. It is cold and windy out there.

Thanksgiving Forecast

By Jack Martin on Nov 29, 2019 at 04:00 PM

Good Chilly Thanksgiving Day Morning, 

I slept in till 5am. That’s a treat…

Chilly, wet and rainy is our Thanksgiving Day forecast.

Starting out the day it is in the low 40s in Santa Barbara and 35 degrees in Santa Ynez.

Snow level is at 2500 feet with 6 inches of snow on the Grape vine.

The only good to that is 1 lane is open to traffic.

Good Wednesday morning,

The rain is falling right on time. Started up fairly heavy at 3:30 am.

From fires to rain and likely some flooding is the story line for the thanksgiving week.

The firemen, bombers, planes and helicopters did a great job on the fire yesterday.

Mother Nature will help out today and Thursday.

What should we expect?

Rain is going to fall fairly heavy for a 2 to 3 hour period.

What a night it was watching the fire grow. From My vantage point I could see it all with my eyes. Winds last night reached 82 miles an hour in the Montecito foothills. The fire started up high, then boom it was down to San Antonio creek area. I watched all the fire trucks rolling up the pass. The good news is it seems to be 1/10 of what it was when I went to bed. Here is now and last night's photos from my stage, or back yard.

Good Monday morning, 

Here we go. The short term models are out. So let’s take a look at the week.

Today starts out nice, but as a front passes the winds will start to blow. First in the mountains, starting around noon. Gust can be 60 miles an hour from the north.

It will be quite windy on the Grapevine. Wind will drop over all of us later in the afternoon and evening. Expect 30 mile an hour winds.

Good Sunday morning, 

I will make this a quicker one. 

Today we have high pressure keeping all clouds out of the area. They are north and south of us.


Today some Santa Ana winds to the south, but mild. Temps will be 4 to 5 degrees above normal in the mid 70s. 

Tonight after the sun goes down, it cools off a lot. Lows in the upper 30s in the valleys and upper 40s coastal and foothills.
