Jack's Weather Report


By Jack Martin on Nov 04, 2021 at 02:53 PM

Good Thursday morning,

The shorter days are quite noticeable these days. Day light is starting into the 7am hour and night time a little after 6 pm. We are well under the 12 hours of day light, with winter solstice 45 days away. Sunday morning when you wake up, you may be refreshed to know it is an hour earlier, but sadden to know that day light will come to an end closer to 5pm. Yes, it is that time of year fall, back and spring, forward.

Good Wednesday morning, 

A warming trend is on tap for all. It is starting out this morning with some dense fog and temps in the 50s, even in the santa Ynez valley.

High pressure and offshore winds will keep us warm with above normal temps through Friday. Highs will be in the upper 70s and low 80s.

Good Friday morning, 

What a day it was on Thursday. Santa Barbara made it to 90 degrees and it was still 77 at 6:30 pm last night.

One more warm day, before we start to cool through the weekend and into next week.

Today we will see upper 70s with offshore winds turning to onshore flow this afternoon.

Good Thursday morning, 

If you enjoyed the warm weather we had on Wednesday, you are going to love the forecast for today.

Yesterday we hit a high of 82 degrees in Santa Barbara and 87 in Santa Ynez. 

This morning as I went outside at 4:30 am, it was quite warm at 65 degrees.

Good Tuesday morning, 

What a great storm that was for our area. Rain totals were fantastic with San Marcos pass as the big winner with 4.57 inches. Everyone fell in line below that with 1 to 3 inches.

Good Monday morning, 

Don’t despair, the rain is still on it's way. The rain is falling just north of us with good rain totals in SLO.

Rocky butte in SLO has received 4.65 inches so far. If you were watching the 49ers game last night, you saw how hard it was raining there.

Good Thursday morning, 

Take a look at the healthy low-pressure system to the north.

That’s what all the chatter is about:  https://zoom.earth/

Today, dry, sunny with some high clouds and low 70s.

Tonight a weak sundowner wind west of the airport, not really affecting SB.

Good Wednesday morning,

As the last week in October approaches, most of us think about Halloween. “Not Jack “ I think about the first rain of the season. 

It is funny, as I type the weather report, the Governor has declared extreme drought and a winter with below normal rainfall. 

Maybe someone should send him my weather report, because his timing is not good, as Nor Cal will get rain for the next 5 days.

Good Tuesday morning, 

A chilly start to the day, much cooler than Monday, especially in the valleys. It was 36 degrees in Santa Ynez.

Today will be warmer as the sun and mild offshore winds will warm us up, overall a nice day high around 70s.

Good Monday morning,

Some north wind out there this morning as a cold front dies moving through SLO. 

There are some clouds and drizzle out there, just not in SB this morning.
