Oh my, it is April 15th. The day my bank account takes a hit.

I hate the idea of working my.......off and giving the state-feds half my earning.

They certainly do not work as hard for it.... Ok enough of my rant. 

The consolation prize is, we are starting a warming trend with a nice 5 days ahead of us.

Today some areas are starting out with fog, but the marine layer is half of what it has been this week.

Santa Barbara is clear thanks to the Northwest winds last night.

Good Monday morning, 

Yes, another start to the work week.

This week, however, will look a little different then we have had in the past.

We are welcoming back fog, which really has not played much of a role in our forecast in the last 5 months. We will also remain cooler through midweek with highs in the upper 60s.

Good Thursday morning,

Nice weather on tap for all, ”with the exception” of the winds.

Last night was great, sitting outside in the warm air. It is feeling like the change of seasons is here.

If you were at Refugio last night, you would know the winds were blowing 50 miles an hour.

Even some Montecito hills are feeling the winds.

Good Wednesday morning,

The last day of the month. On Thursday we will welcome April.

Yesterday the onshore flow delayed the onset of the Santa Ana wind event, but it is here now.

Today we will warm up substantially with most areas in the upper 70s and low 80s.

The winds are rising in Ventura and South. This will create a windy and warm day for those locations.
