Happy New Year’s Eve day.

Good Tuesday morning, 

Wow what a crazy day Monday and the hail Sunday night. California does not mess around, when it rains it pours. I am so happy the sunshine is back. 

The first rain of the season did not hold back. Most locations in the coastal areas of SB received close to 2 inches of rain, with the mountains receiving 3 to 3.5 inches.

Good Monday morning,

Wow that was quite the downpour last night around 10pm. The skies just opened up and dumped rain for a short period.

I am not sure if I believe this, but my weather station shows 1.36 for yesterday and .43 for today.

2 days before the funky Christmas.....

No excitement in the air for Christmas, but our weather has some.

Take a look at the satellite, there are a number of systems attempting to affect our weather and cause rain.

Today and tonight it is all about the off shore winds in Ventura to LA. This will create wind and fire danger once again.

Good Tuesday morning,

Our daylight will now be 1 to 2 minutes longer each day until June 21st.

Here is something fun and interesting that Aaron brought to my attention....

Did you know that during summer and winter equinox, it is easier to balance an egg on its edge.

Happy week before Christmas eave. OMG it is almost here...

Today we have a weak low pressure system bringing rain to the Bay Area and down the coast to SLO.

This is not a big rain maker for anyone.

1 to 1/4 inch in SLO and nothing for us.

Good Monday morning,

It has been a typical La Niña pattern so far this rainy season. All the storm track has stayed well to the north, even NorCal has remained quite dry so far. 

Today we wake to another round of wind. The low pressure system that passed through yesterday  is now over Nevada.
