Weather should be pleasant at the Bowl for Jimmy Buffett.

Thursday and through the weekend, it is all about wind.

Good Sunday morning,

If you look outside right now to the west, you will see the full moon setting. 

Since the wind to the south is gone, they can recover from the mess in the yards and decks. The good news is the fires were minimal. 

Today will be sunny and cooler. Highs in the low 70s along the coast and low 80s inland.

Good Tuesday Morning,

October is alway an interesting month for weather. Summer patterns begin to change and we start to see quite a fluctuation in the forecast. This week is no different.

A cold low pressure system in Canada is pushing into Washington. This is going to bring cooler days today and Wednesday.

Also, Thursday we will see our first strong Santa Ana wind event for the season. 

Mountains will see 50 to 60 mile an hour winds in Ventura and to the south.

Good Friday morning, 

October has arrived and also Santa Ana season. 

We will be influenced by off shore flow and a weak Santa Ana wind event this weekend. 

The real result will be temps warning into the 80s and 90s in some locations. 

It will be a great late summer weekend for all that love warm and sunny weather. 

Winds will blow Saturday and Sunday for the northeast at around 10 to 25 miles an hour. This will affect southern Santa Ana wind prone areas. 

For SB to Gaviota there will be some northwest winds today into tonight, but mild.
