Jack's Weather Report


By Jack Martin on May 11, 2020 at 06:16 PM

Good Monday morning,

I hope everyone had a great Mother’s Day, for me it was special with my 2 daughters who are both due with baby girls in June.  Blakely my two-year-old granddaughter thinks she will be in charge.

Today we will welcome some May Gray weather. Yes, typical weather for this time of year has returned to the coastal areas.

Yesterday the marine layer never broke along the coast, just over the San Macros Pass it was sunny and 80 degrees.

This week we will see a similar pattern, with fog, drizzle, and damp morning the next few days.

Good Thursday morning,

You know what really heats me up??!!, besides the heat from the weather we are having, it is listening to the news and listening to the way some of the press reports the scare tactics on COVID.

So, I have to start with this one today. Yesterday and this Morning, the local news starts out, stating 70 new cases in Santa Barbara county.

Stating the biggest jump to date!!!!

What they mention only in the small print, is 65 of those cases were in the Lompoc Jail.

Personally I don’t count people that are locked up as a threat.

Also, take a look at 100% of the new cases. They are all in north county. NOT even 1 in Santa Barbara areas.

Good Wednesday morning,

Are you ready for the heat? Ready or not, it is going to be a hot few days.

This spells it out. 


Today we will see 90s for most, with another round of winds tonight.

Happy Cinco de Mayo,

It is going to be a much different year for this holiday. We in the United states treat this holiday much different than Mexico.


Unfortunately we will likely be drinking margaritas and eating tacos at home this year.

I will call Playa Azul and pick up food and margaritas to go 805-966-2860  http://laplayaazulcafe.com/  order early they will be busy….

Good Monday morning,

I hope everyone had a great weekend. It was extremely nice, with lots of beach goers.

I was there on Saturday with lots of people enjoying the great weather.

Even the sheriff’s department foot patrol and horse back patrol were roaming the beach’s to enforce social distancing.

Welcome to the first day in May, and the hope that we will now transition back to normalcy in our lives.

Thank you to Governor Newsom and everyone that sent him a email yesterday.

I do believe our voices helped influence the right decision to keep beaches open in Santa Barbara.

Now we just need to make sure we follow the rules and tell the 5% to shape up. 

Today we wake to sunny skies, as the wind has blown any fog out to sea.

Good Thursday Morning,

It is the last day of April and we will start up a new month on Friday.

Today we will start out with fog, but we will clear much earlier. It looks like noonish the sun will return.

Good Wednesday morning,

Look, it is fog.....we have not seen much of this for some time... 

The fog is around 800 feet thick and will burn off later this morning. 


Creating a cooler day with highs around 5 degrees cooler than Tuesday. 

Expect low to mid 70s today.

Good Tuesday morning, 

High pressure and off shore winds are building back in today. This will provide a nice warm up for all.

Temps today will be the highest for the week. Inland areas and valleys like Santa Ynez will be in the 90s, Santa Barbara still really nice in the 80s.

Good Monday morning, 

Can you believe that another month is going into the record books. 

Here we are April 27th and May will be here on Friday. 

As we start a new week, the hot weather will turn to warm weather.

Highs Will still be in the upper 70s and low 80s, but we will shed the 90s. 

Today is still starting out warm, with SB at 70 degrees.
