Good Wednesday morning, 

Another week and month marching by.

The next week is dominated by dry weather, warmer Santa Ana winds.

Today a few low clouds to start the day, but any areas with clouds will disappear quickly as the offshore flow begins.

Thursday the offshore kicks in at its normal spots. Ventura to Santa Monica will experience 35 to 45 mile an hour offshore winds. As usual, the winds will compress and warm the air. Ventura south will warm 8 to 10 degrees. Santa Barbara has no wind and 4 to 8 degrees of warming.

Friday winds subside for 1 day, with little change in temp. A few degrees of cooling.

Saturday is another Strong Santa Ana event. This kicks up the winds to the south and heats the skies for all into the low to mid-70s. 

Sunday is another great day in Santa Barbara, winds settle in Ventura south.

Good Tuesday morning, 

The Cut-off low that has been pestering us for the last 5 days is now moved East. 

The rain finally came in the afternoon but did not produce much. The big winner was Refugio canyon with .28", everyone else was 1/10 or less.

Today and the rest of the week, into early next week it is all about dry weather again.

Good Monday morning, 

A holiday for some, but for all, we have a little rain in the forecast. 

The cut-off low that has been spinning in the Pacific is now starting to move towards the coast. This will bring us some light rain after 10 am into this evening.

Not a lot maybe 1/10 of an inch, with a max of 1/4 of an inch. https://zoom.earth/

Good Thursday morning,

As always, the week is flying by. Yesterday the clouds kept us cooler than predicted with a high of 73 degrees.

Today we have lots of action in the Pacific, but not a lot of effects here https://zoom.earth/

Other than cooler weather for the next 7 days. it looks like highs of the mid-60s and high clouds will be part of the forecast through the weekend.

Good Wednesday morning,

 Where do I start today? High pressure will give us a day to remember. https://zoom.earth/

59 degrees at 4:30 am in January. The East coast is having record lows with high in the teens. 
If you live on the beach, you will hear the surf at 5:30 is a lot closer with a 5.3 high tide, however, we will be rewarded with a .02 low tide at 1:17 pm. 

You have my permission to take a late lunch and a beach walk 

Today will be a warm day. Hot for most especially for winter. Highs will be in the upper 70 to low 80s with offshore winds.

Good Tuesday morning, 

Wow, what a sunrise on Monday. It was spectacular!

Hopefully, it is a good day for you, and you staying away from Covid. It is another crazy surge after the holidays. If you are Covid free like me.  “That rhymes “ You are going to love the summer-like weather we will see for the next 3 days.

Good Friday morning, 

There will be some changes to the weather pattern of the past few days, as offshore flow turns onshore.

Low pressure to the north is going to brush the area today. 

It still looks like if any rain falls it will be In the 1/100's of an inch and remain in SLO County.

For us only cooler temps in the low 60s and some fog today. The system washes out as it nears point conception.

Good Wednesday morning,

It has been a few days, since my last report. Sorry for that, but sunny weather has been keeping me very busy trying to catch up from the rains.

The sunny and dry weather will continue for the next weeks at least. This is great news. Even better, the weather in the next 2 days will warm up.

Today it looks like the main story will be the north winds. https://www.weather.gov/lox/

Good Thursday morning,

As you are all aware, we have had fog most of this week keeping it quite cool during the days with highs only in the low 60s. Today the dense fog continues. 4 flights last night were even canceled because of the fog at SB airport. Some flights early this morning will likely be delayed with the fog continuing.
