By Jack Martin on Jun 10, 2019 at 03:28 PM

Good Sunday morning,

Summer is arriving.

What a great weekend so far, and the good news is it gets better and continues into midweek.

Saturday night was fantastic, it was the first time in quite awhile where you could sit outside and enjoy the evening and fantastic sunset...

If you are at the lake, you are in heaven. Highs in the upper 90s.

Along the coast, we will wake to a little fog, but it will burn off quickly. Highs will make it into the low 80s.

Good Friday morning,

The weekend is upon us and you are going to like what I have to say..... 

Today we will have typical night and morning low clouds and another damp start to the day.

Except if you are in SLO. You will have a nice sunny day, and warm.

Tonight in SB we will have a weak sundowner wind event, around 15 miles an hours.... 

Now the good news, you will need your sunscreen.

Good Wednesday morning, 

We had a little treat late in the day Tuesday. I think it is called the Sun. It has been so long since we have had clearing and sunshine.

I almost forgot what it was. 

Today we start out with the typical gray pattern in the morning. It does look like we should see some clearing later in the afternoon.

All in all, a fair day in the low 70s along the coast, Santa Ynez will be in the low 80s.

Good Monday morning, 

Funky weather is almost done, and we will turn to normal June weather.

As the week progresses, we will have a warm up but the marine layer along the coast will stay around. 

Yesterday we saw no sun, and a little rain. We recorded 1/100 of an inch.

Today the low is further south, over Orange County right now. 

This will give us low clouds and fog, with a slight chance of afternoon showers.

Tuesday, the low is out of the picture and high pressure builds in with temps rising and marine layer thinning to 1,000 to 1,500 feet.

This will allow valleys to warm up and coastal areas to have some afternoon sun.

Good Sunday morning,

Saturday was quite the interesting day. A few down pours in areas, other areas saw some drops. The skies were eye catching. All eyes were to the sky, looking to see if the white clouds turned to gray and rain.

Good news is that outdoor parties and wedding were not rained out. 

Today that slow moving low will do the same thing as yesterday.

We have a little of everything again today. Fog in the morning, then chance of thundershowers in the afternoon.

June 1st, 2019

Here we go, a new month. Of course June is starting out with fog and drizzle this morning.

As you wake up, you will find it quite damp this morning. June is known as June gloom around these parts.

We are living up to it on the first day of the month.

More interesting weather for the weekend, as the low pressure has dropped almost right over us.

This is what is pulling in the marine layer:

Looks like the fog will stick around most of Saturday, along the coast at least.

Good Friday morning, 

It is the time of the year where day light starts so early. Amazing how early day light arrives this time of year.

The last day of a very interesting month of May. 

Today there is a low pressure system that is rolling down the interior from Northern California. This will move over SLO, Santa Barbara, and Ventura county later today. 

With the warming of the day time hours, this can trigger thunder showers over the inland mountains. Last night the skies were quite active in northern Ca areas. This will drop into our area today. Thunder showers really are looking to stay to the East of our area.

Good Thursday morning, 

This week has got me all screwed up on the day. I have to pause and think about what day it is. 

The month is coming to the end and May looks to provide some fireworks in the mountains to close out the month.

Fireworks in the form of thunder and lightning is possible. 

“check out this movie of a thunder storm forming“ 

Thanks Mike!

This is all due to cold air and a low pressure system dropping down out of the north. 

The low pressure system will drop south and remain in the area through Sunday.

Good Wednesday morning,

Not a lot of excitement with the weather.

Low pressure and colder air to the east will give us a slight chance for mountain showers in the afternoon.

 We will also see a nice warm up in the afternoon due to sunshine.

Basically night and some morning low clouds are likely through Friday morning.

Friday afternoon, another low pressure system drops from the north and will give a better chance for some mountain showers.
