Good Tuesday morning, 

I hope everyone is back on the email group after last weeks fiasco with Google suites.

We still truly do not know why or how many people got dropped from the group, so if there are anymore let us know.

This weeks weather is in complete contrasts to last week. This month will start off dry with some wind.

February first, we are in the heart of the winter and rainy season, but not this week.

The models are now in agreement and there solution is dry all week with warming Thursday through Sunday. Some 8 to 12 degrees above normal. 

Today we will see high clouds stream over us with southwest flow.

So far the heavy rains have stayed to the north. SLO county at rocky Butte has received 13 inches of rain.

But as you move south, the rain total really have dropped off. Carp has only seen a little more then ½ inch, my house 1.47 inches yesterday and today 1/10.

Tuesday morning,

The sunshine is back for a day. This is kind of like being in the eye of a hurricane, but time is prolonged before the craziness begins.

Here is the big low pressure system to the north, taking aim at us:

Good Monday morning,

Can you believe a week ago it was 89 degrees, and today we have snow on our local mountains.

Thanks for the photo Adam.

Today we will see wind and cold, not a lot of rain. Just showers, rain and snow.

Tuesday sunny, but windy.

Good Friday morning,

Today starts the change in the weather pattern. We have a low pressure system dropping down the coast over Northern California right now.

You can see it spinning over the area:

This is going to bring some light rain today. Expect light rain to start up mainly to the north this morning, then move south late this morning ahead of the front.

It is a 12121 day, 

Also, it will be the warmest day in the next week.

LA and Ventura survived the winds and we now have calm weather with weak off shore winds. Highs today will be in the low 70s.

Friday a low pressure system to the north will begin to move south. This should bring back onshore flow and some marine layer.

Good Wednesday morning,

What a wild day on Tuesday, especially if you lived to the South.

A cut off low pressure system rolled though in the morning and actually brought a few sprinkles to Santa Barbara, then some afternoon winds.

The real Action was to the South, Ventura to LA. It started out with fog, then a strong Santa Ana wind event occurred.

Good Tuesday morning,

Today will be a wild ride for all areas South of Ventura. The winds are now just starting to wind up.

A cold low pressure system will fuel the Santa Ana wind event for Ventura south.

This will bring up the winds to the south. 60 to 70 miles an hour with some gusts of 80.

Winds will blow hard into Wednesday morning. Winds in SB will not be a factor, lighter winds will affect the Montecito hills, but nothing like to the south.
