Jack's Weather Report


By Jack Martin on Mar 25, 2021 at 02:49 PM

Good Thursday morning, 

Yesterday was a nice warm day in SB and a windy day to the south. 

Today brings another day of spring weather, and the next inside slider. 

Today will be quite cool and breezy at times.

The fog layer is building into the Santa Ynez valley and will drop south today.

Some areas will struggle to see sunshine.

Happy Saint Patrick’s day,

It has been 1 year to the day, that Restraunt dining was shut down.

It is nice to see that today will be the first day that they are able to have inside dining again. 

Hopefully,  this is the beginning of the end of this chapter in our lives. 

Today will also be a nice day, with highs in the low to mid 60s. Some high clouds this morning, but lots of sunshine.

Good Tuesday morning, 

The rain is gone, and low pressure has moved over Las Vegas. 

Last night brought a nice rainbow as I was leaving work.

Today we have one more day of wind, then we are in for a break in weather.

Clear skies and no rain is the forecast for the next 7 days.


Today will be breezy with highs in the low 60s. Still chilly, but we are moving in the right direction.

Good damp Monday morning,

As we rise this morning, you will find damp streets. 

A weak low-pressure system has brought us rain as advertised overnight.

It is more like a Seattle rain, light and drizzly. My weather station has received 6/100th of an inch. This is right on target as we expected 1/10th of an inch to a max of 1/4th inch.


Rain this morning will quickly clear out and work it’s way south.

Good Thursday morning, 

What excitement we had last night in Santa Barbara. I do not remember ever seeing snow or hail that accumulated over 1/2 an inch. That was pretty amazing from Santa Barbara. If you missed it you can see it on my Instagram page, @action_jackk

Today that low pressure system has moved very slowly. It is still off the coast and will bring rain and snow in the form of showers today.

Good wet Wednesday morning, 

It has been 6 weeks since we have had any rain. It is nice to hear it on my roof, and not in my house 😀.

The rain started last night and picked up after midnight, with the first wave of rain bringing us a little more than 1/2 inch so far. There were however, a few pockets of accumulation of over an inch.

As we look at the satellite, this is a large cold system with nice rotation, which will hang around for the next 36 hours.

Good Tuesday morning, 

Finally after 6 weeks, we have rain on the way.

A cold low pressure system to the north will begin to drop south and rain will spread into our area tonight and Wednesday.


Last night the wind was blowing pretty hard from the Northwest, most of the night.

Expect more wind this morning, and a cool day.

Good Thursday morning,

Yesterday was an interesting day with chilly temps, wind and a little rain.

This was all created by the cut-off low, wobbling down the coast.

You might remember yesterday’s forecast saying the low was behaving well, then it had to test me by wobbling closer to us for a short time creating some rain.

All in all, we barely had much of a rain with totals of 1/100 to 5/100.

It did create some excitement for a product we have not seen in 5 weeks.

Good Wednesday morning,

The cut off low is behaving well and is now 300 miles west of LA.

This is throwing mid and high clouds our way, creating a great sunrise.

Today will be a cooler day, with highs in the low 60s, even a 20% chance of rain.

Should the cut off low wobble towards us, making a little northerly push.


Otherwise, it will be just a cooler day with onshore flow. 

There is even a little dampness in the air today.

Good Tuesday morning,

There she is. The little cut off low spinning out in the Pacific. 

She is around 500 miles south west of SFO. 

This low pressure system will wobble south of us, then move East over Orange County and San Diego Wednesday afternoon. The only real affect it will have is temps will be 10 to 15 degrees cooler, on Wednesday.
