Jack's Weather Report


By Jack Martin on Apr 05, 2022 at 05:12 PM

Good Tuesday morning, 

It was a windy night for those in Montecito. The highest wind gust was 71 miles an hour, but most of the area saw gusts in the 50s. The winds will also lead to very hot temps today with highs in the mid to upper 80s in Montecito. 

Take a look you will need to blink to believe your eyes 

Winds will shift to the south today and rock Mark’s home and everyone’s from Ventura to Catalina Island.

They are in for 24 to 36 hours of wind. 

This will also increase the Mercury for all. Highs will go to the 80s and 90s. 

Then some valley locations will even see some low 100 reading Thursday and Friday.

Back in our neck of the woods, it will remain in the upper 80s and low 90s through Friday.

The wind event for us is pretty much over, Montecito might still see some wind, but the event has moved south.

Good Wednesday morning, 

Most coastal areas will start the day with low clouds and fog, however, SB will not due to the North winds last night. 

Today there will be some warming highs into the upper 60s. 

Thursday another weak weather system will likely bring fog to most coastal areas, and cooler weather. Thursday night another sundowner wind event for Santa Barbara which will lead to clear skies Friday morning.

All other locations will have another start with low clouds and fog.

For the weekend, warming with some fog and low clouds along the coast and warmer inland.

This is a preview of our typical May gray or June gloom along the coast.

Highs will be in the upper 60s to mid-70s in the valleys. Just fine weather. 

Next week is looking nice with highs in the low 70s with no threat of rain through at least mid-week. 

No excitement in the forecast, but April fools is Friday be aware of pranks 😂

More fun to come

Good Tuesday morning, 

High pressure and offshore flow are moving in. This will create hot weather for all. 

Last night a mild sundowner kept the air warm in the low 70s to after 8 pm. 

Today will be warm with highs in the upper 70s. 

Wednesday the Santa Ana wind arrives in Ventura, and the Mercury rises. Highs in the mid-80s to low 90s. No wind in Santa Barbara. 

Thursday, Friday, and Saturday slight cooling,

Happy St Patricks Day!!

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day, 

Daylight is creeping across the country, but darkness is not stopping the celebration in SLO.

All the Irish pubs are open and busy. Only 2 days a year this happens in the early morning hours.

Saint Patrick’s Day and Cal Poly graduation day.

It is fun, I never drank that early until my daughter graduated from Cal Poly 

Last night the sundowner winds blew and warmed the air to 80 degrees at 6 pm.

Good Monday morning,

Hopefully, you got your clocks adjusted and you know what time it is. I woke up and had to ask Alexa because I could not remember if my clock was correct.

Today and this work week will be dry, with some wind at times. Highs will be in the low 70s most of the workweek. Low pressure will move in Tuesday and do nothing more than give us some winds.

Mid-week there is really nothing to talk about. Just good weather.

Good Wednesday morning,

A change in the weather is going to occur starting today. Rain is not in the picture anytime soon.

The hoped that March would bring us a March Miracle but it is not looking good as we are approaching the middle of the month.

Cooler weather will start as low pressure and an inside slider will arrive on Thursday. This will do nothing more than cool us down and create wind. The change is cooler weather with wind Thursday from the Northwest after the dry front washes through.

Friday Northwest winds turn to Northeast winds

Good Friday morning, 

Not much rain out there, today we will see a showery pattern with rain coming from over the mountains spreading to the coast. Where rain falls it will be 1/10 to 1/4 of an inch 

Tonight the snow level drops to 3000 feet and another low-pressure system heads towards us from Oregon. 

Saturday is another chance for more showers from the next system. This one is moisture-starved, so the total will be low. The snow level will be low, with 4 to 6 inches 3000 feet and above.

Good Thursday morning, 

Today is a cooler day by 10 to 15 degrees from yesterday. This is created by an approaching front that has cut off from the main low-pressure system. This will work its way towards us today, but any rain will hold off until tonight and Friday. The cut-off low is looking to take a more eastern track, so the rain total will be more like 1/4 to 1/2 inch. 

Rain will start overnight then turn to showers on Friday afternoon. With 1/4 to 1/2 inch of rain for all. Some Santa Ynez mountains will see 3/4 of an inch and snow levels at 5000 ft.

Saturday into Saturday night another system wobbles our way. This is colder and dryer.

Good Wednesday morning, 

Today is hump day, but more so transition day. It is hard to believe it is March 2nd and this will be the first real accumulation of rain in our for 2022. 

Here’s the scoop:

Today, warm and sunny for the most part. Temps will cool 3 to 8 degrees from Tuesday.

Thursday the change arrives with mid to high clouds streaming over us as a storm system to the north nears point conception.

Thursday night, the rain arrives. This will be the first rainmaker for us in 2022. 


By Jack Martin on Mar 01, 2022 at 05:57 PM

Welcome to march, we can only hope that a change to the month will change the weather pattern. Today it will not. It will be summer-like with highs in the 80s for most.

Wednesday however is transition day. We will start to feel a change and go back to onshore flow.

Thursday now is looking more likely we will see a little rain. “stress little“.

A system to the north will bring light rain Thursday afternoon into Friday morning. This looks to only drop 1/10th to 1/4 of an inch at best.
