Jack's Weather Report


By Jack Martin on May 28, 2019 at 08:17 PM

Tuesday morning,

It is starting out quite chilly out there. Cold air with clear skies is making our morning chilly.

If you look at the satellite you can see a low pressure system to the east spinning around.

This will do nothing more than give us some pretty puffy clouds over our mountains this afternoon.

The sun heating the air will allow clouds to build. Slight chance of thunder storms, mainly to the East of us.


Cold air sticks around Wednesday, but some warming each day. Marine layer likely returns in the mornings and burns off by mid day.


Holiday Weekend Forecast

By Jack Martin on May 28, 2019 at 08:13 PM

Uggs, and you might want to pack those Uggs boots if you plan on a lake trip this weekend.

The good news is, if people are reading the forecast, the lake will see 1/2 the normal turn out.

This weekend is usually celebrated as the start of summer. This year will not be that at all. Highs at the lake will be in the 60s. 

Here is your lake weather:


Since we are talking about lakes, Cachuma is at 80.8%. Naciemiento is at 81% with chilly air and water.

Good morning, 

Holiday Monday for most. It should be a nice sunny day, but temps will remain 10 to 15 degrees below normal.

The good new is temps will climb each day through Wednesday.

Better yet, no rain this week..... I think this is the first week in over a month that I can make that statement.

Here are the rain totals for the last 5 days. Not a lot of rain fell with the past 2 systems. 

San Marcos Pass was one of the winners.


5/26/19 Weather Change

By Jack Martin on May 28, 2019 at 05:58 PM

Good Sunday morning,

Saturday actually turned out to be nice after the low clouds burned off. The thunder showers stayed to the south over Ventura.

We saw only some of the puffy clouds over the mountains.

A little twist in our forecast today. As you can see out there, no rain yet. Rain is falling in the central coast and will be here in the next hour.


The low stayed a little more to the west then predicted yesterday. It will be over King City this afternoon and will throw showers at us soon.



5/25/19 Memorial Weekend Forecast

By Jack Martin on May 28, 2019 at 03:42 PM

Good Saturday morning,

Early rise for the day, perfect to get an early forecast out to all.

Not a lot of changes in the forecast, but let’s update to make it easy.... 

A cool damp weekend on tap for Southern California. This is more like a Seattle, Wa forecast. 

Actually Seattle will be nicer Sunday and Monday.


If you want the warmth and heat. Just jump on a plane and go to Florida. They are going to be in the 90s.


5/23/19 Feels Like 2/23/19

Good cool February morning, 

Ok well, it is really May, but you would never know it from the weather. 

Our pattern of cool - cold weather, wind and rain will continues into early next week.


We have another series of systems rolling though, bringing us a mix of everything.

Today, it will be relatively nice, but another weak system is rolling into Northern California.

This will begin to affect us tonight with a chance of showers Thursday night into Friday morning.

Friday afternoon through most of Saturday will be fair, but way colder then we would expect this time of year.

I suggest going to the snow instead of the lake for swimming, boating, skiing etc.

My goodness,

The weather just will not cut us a break. The wind has been crazy for the past 2 days, especially last night.

Today another system rolls down the coast. This will arrive in SB late this morning, bringing us another decent chance of rain.

This system is north to south again. Rain is out there to the north right now, very showery but there…


5/21/19 Weather

By Jack Martin on May 21, 2019 at 03:00 PM

Our interesting weather pattern in May continues. Another low pressure system is dropping out of Oregon today.

This will bring wind and a chance for some showers over night.

This system is dropping north to south, with that, a chance of rain is possible in the northern SB and SLO.

Santa Barbara should be spared, because of the mountains.

That being said, there is still a 20% chance for rain tonight. Everyone will feel the wind through Wednesday morning.

Good Monday morning,

Sunday’s rain was pretty incredible with Montecito picking up 1.58 inches of rain.

Thanks to afternoon showers. Overall it has been an incredible May, for rain.

In just the past week, some locations have picked up 2.5 inches and the creeks are flowing again in Montecito. 


Today we start out with wind and the wind will continue into tonight. 


Rainy Sunday Morning 5/19/19

By Jack Martin on May 20, 2019 at 03:13 PM

Absolutely amazing. Close to another inch of rain in the area.

That’s over 2 inches for the week in some locations, and it is May......


Rain will fade away this morning and turn to partly cloudy. Sure there will be a chance for showers, but not likely after 12  noon.

To the south in LA, showers are more likely.

“Jimmy put on your sportscoat and have a good open house.... “


The low is currently moving South and East now. This will allow the sun to come out and begin the drying process.
