Jack's Weather Report

Good Wednesday morning, 

It is cold out there. In Santa Ynez, as you go outdoors it is 32 degrees with a wind chill of 25 degrees.

Santa Barbara is a breezy 40 degrees. 

The storm was another dud except for the cold air. The Santa Barbara area did only see some sprinkles and no real accumulation. Areas in SLO did better, but less than 1/4 of an inch. Today cold air with some mountain showers, but for our area, the rain chances are over for the most part.

The special date has arrived. 2/22/22. It will be 11 years and 1 month and 11 days before we align numbers like this again.

Today we will have an interesting change in pattern with cold arriving later in the day. The coldest low-pressure system of the season is blasting down from Canada to the North. This will make our weather quite different from what we have seen most of February https://zoom.earth/

Good Friday morning,

The workweek is coming to a close, with another great weekend ahead.

Today we will be influenced by offshore flow, bringing warm temps. Another day in the low 70s . with fantastic conditions, even if we need rain.

Saturday will be a carbon copy of today. Highs in the low 70s and lows in the 40s.

Sunday, we start a cooldown, with onshore flow returning in the afternoon, still a nice day.

Good Wednesday morning, 

The excitement of Tuesday is behind us, all the wind and the brief downpour resulted in .005 of rain. The 20% chance turned into 100% where rain did occur for a short period, but other locations had no rain, because of the showery nature of the system. We even saw some brief hail. Pasadena saw the most hail with around 1/2 inch making the streets white for a brief time. 

The wild Tuesday is behind us, and we will fall back into untypical February weather.

OM goodness, where do I start today. Outside of the weather, which was fantastic at the Super Bowl.

It was 86 degrees and a new record for the warmest Superbowl to date.

It was the best game to witness in person and in our seats. You would have thought we were celebrities, as they were all around us. Row 3 on the Rams side 46-yard line. We had better seats than the cameramen.

Good Friday morning,

Just fantastic weather continues through Sunday. Highs will be in the 80s through Sunday.


High pressure and offshore is giving us a dome around the western states.

Good Wednesday morning, 

Lots of 2’s on our date today. Hard to forget the date. 

It is also Groundhog Day with an accuracy rate of 35% regarding the winter.

He is not really that important, except for entertainment value.

The Midwest today will tell you 6 more weeks of winter. Chicago area and Midwest will see lots of snow and over 1200 flight cancelations.

Good Friday morning, 

As the weekend approaches so does another Santa Ana with Northeast winds event. This is way better than the Nor’easter on the East coast that is going to bring cold and snow from Phila to Maine this weekend. 


I think it is an easy call to say 70 degrees on California to 20 degrees and snow on the East coast. I am so glad I went west. I moved west 40 years ago.

Good Thursday morning, 

Here we go, with the last few days in January and really no rain this month to speak of.

Today we will see our usual sunny warm day with highs in the low 70s.

Good Tuesday morning, 

It will be cooler today with highs in the mid-60s. This is thanks to the return of onshore flow and some pockets of fog in areas today.

The onshore flow will be short-lived because another Santa Ana wind event will start up again tonight. Offshore winds will blow through mid-day Wednesday and keep us all warm through Thursday. Highs in the low to mid-70s.

Friday and Saturday a return to onshore and cooler mid-60s again.
