Good Monday morning,

Chilly morning out there, Santa Ynez is 32 chilly degrees 45 at my house.

The wind is gone now, but a mess is left behind.

The next few days will be chilly, but sunny. Day time highs will reach 60 and night time in the Santa Ynez valley will be in the 20s.

Good Thursday morning, 

What a great day we had on Wednesday with a high in Santa Barbara of 83 and 87 in Santa Ynez. 

Today will be no different. Highs today will actually be warmer than Wednesday.

It will also feel more tropical as a former tropical storm in Mexico drifts over us.

You can see the 2 systems north and south that are drifting our way: 

If you walk outside you can feel it is starting out warmer. This will bring us 80s and 90s for all today.

Yes, this day has finally come. Election day, regardless of how you vote. I think everyone will agree we will be happy when political ads stop.


As I mentioned in the earlier forecast, we would have temps ranging from  the 70s to 90s this week.

The fog is still with us this morning. Today will be one of the 70s days, low 70s along the coast. Low 80s in the valleys.

Good Monday morning,

The only real change to the forecast is darkness at 5:30 pm each day, with a 1 to 2 minute each day of daylight loss until December 21st. Yesterday we saw some tropical clouds over us thanks to a weak system that floated up from Mexico. This made a nice tropical feel in the afternoon, and of coarse a great sunset.


By Jack Martin on Oct 30, 2020 at 04:00 PM

Almost 10,20,30 for the date. Just 2 more days of October, they will be days of fantastic weather.

Just think, you could be in Boston at 30 degrees, or Chicago 38.

Last night was also perfect to be outdoors. Warm and another great sunset.

The forecast is really easy. Just Indian Summer weather in Southern California.

Highs will be 70s and 80s along the coast through Tuesday and 80s and 90s in the valleys.

Good Thursday morning,

Just great weather on tap for the end of October and the beginning of November.

Yes, Thanksgiving is less than 30 days away. Also on Sunday early morning, 3am we turn back the clocks.

This will allow all you late nighters to get an extra hour of sleep. For me I worry that I will now be waking up at 2 or 3 am each day. 

As far as the weather goes we will have perfect weather for this time of year.

Good Wednesday morning, 

This is a cool loop show how the day light turns to night over the Pacific Ocean.

You can also see how off shore flow is keeping any and all clouds out to sea:


The real story however is those Dodgers, World Series campions for the first time since 1988.

Good Tuesday morning,

If you are waking up in Solvang it is a crisp 37 degrees. Yes that’s chilly.


Orange County, wind and fires are your morning. Off shore winds will make the coast of Long Beach and Newport smoky. 

Here in SB, 52 degrees starts your day, with a high of 70. Perfect fall weather for us.

Good Monday morning, 

This is a great graphic to see what is happening with the off shore winds.

Take a look at the north to East to west winds pushing any marine layer well off shore.


The story for the first half on the week will be off shore winds and lots of sunshine.
