Good Wednesday morning,

Is the heat getting to you? My goodness it was hot yesterday.

For hump day we will get a little break. Highs will be in the 80s with a few 90s.

Better than the 90s and 100s . Also the winds will tale off for the day.

Santa Ana wind prone areas will still have mild winds, but we take the wild off the table until Thursday.

For Santa Barbara, a summer heat wave continues. Calm winds the rest of the week and temps in the 80s through Saturday.

Good Tuesday morning, 

Monday was quite hot. High in Santa Barbara of 91 degrees. Today we should even be hotter. 90s and some locations seeing us top triple digits.

Yes welcome to the Santa Ana season.

I think Johnny Carson said it best. People say Southern California does not have 4 seasons.

Well they are wrong, we have fire, flood, wind and rainy season.

Good Monday morning, 

It was a great summer like weekend and summer like conditions are going to continue all week. We are looking at 80s and 90s everywhere. 

The winds have been manageable along the coast, but the Montecito hills are still seeing 50 mile an hour wind through mid morning.

Winds are going to shift to Ventura and south as we set up for northeast winds and a Santa Ana event.

Good Saturday morning, 

Lots of clear skies out there today. As a matter of fact, we are looking at the same conditions through next week. 

The story is once again about the wind. A system to the north is pushing into the Great Basin and this will create wind once again.

Happy Friday, 

Windy Thursday night sparked one fire. It made for a rough commute to santa Ynez and north homes.

I watch the trail of headlights and break lights climbing the pass from my house. I am glad I was watching and not in it. 

Winds should die down today and through Saturday, but Saturday night they are back for another round into Sunday morning.
