Friday 1/4/19 Rain Forecast

By Jack Martin on Jan 04, 2019 at 06:17 PM

Another chilly start to the day. Today will be the last nice day before rain starts up on Saturday morning.

The cold low will move in over night with snow levels at 4,500 feet. Rain will start north to south.

The central coast will see rain right around dawn on Saturday.

It will drop south and be raining in Santa Barbara by late morning. Then in Ventura and south shortly after.

It does look like the low will pull up the subtropical jet in the afternoon. This will enhance the rainfall and create heavier rain.

The warmer air, however, will raise the snow level to 5,500 feet.


Good Thursday Morning 1/3/19

Are you as confused on what day it is, as I am? Having days off in the middle of the week is really messing with my brain. 

For Thursday, we are expecting more of the same. Another cold start to the morning.

If you are waking up in the Santa Ynez valley, it is a frosty 30 degrees.


January 2nd, 2019

The weather during the holiday has been cold, but dry.

I feel like I have been singing the same record for the past 2 weeks.

We will have 2 more days of the same. Cooler days and colder nights, then it all begins to change.

Friday will be transition day, then we open the door for a series of storms.

The first will arrive Saturday, which is 900 miles north west of Hawaii. This will arrive as a cut -off low.

We have not talked about this type of storm in awhile, but they are not real predictable on timing and strength.

If sub tropical is pulled into the picture, the rainfall is enhanced.

At this point, the models are still all over the map.

From 2/10 to 2 inches. Between you and I, cut-off lows drop a lot of rain or very little.


Happy New Year

By Jack Martin on Jan 02, 2019 at 08:00 PM

Yes, another new year has arrived. I hope everyone enjoyed themselves last night.

It was a fun night with friends and I made it to 10pm. A mile stone for me.

The weather to start the year is interesting. Locally we have cold and wind.

Nationally, the East coast and Pacific Northwest are wet. Also look at the subtropical jet over the Baja.

Dry, but windy weather for some locations. Everyone will have chilly temps. 

Today I decided to feature Santa Ynez, my old stomping grounds.

If you are waking up there this morning, it is a chilly 30 degrees. Highs for the day will hit 60 degrees at best.


12/31/2018 Forecast

By Jack Martin on Dec 31, 2018 at 06:07 PM

Good Monday morning,

Or the last 18 hours of 2018. 

Where fireworks may be common for New Year’s Eve . This will be replaced by wind in venture and areas south into Pasadena . 

Wind is going to come up tonight before the celebration in those areas. We are going to 

Have a cold Santa Ana wind event . Winds will blow into New Year’s Day .

It is looking like those areas can see 20 to 30 mile winds and gusts 45 to 60 in the mountains and valleys.

This will make for a tough new year day at the rose bowl parade and game. 

Temps will also be well below normal . Lows in valleys will dip into the 20 something the next few nights.

Highs will be in the low 60s. 


12/27/18 Forecast

By Jack Martin on Dec 27, 2018 at 08:16 PM

There is not a lot of weather excitement, with the exception of wind and colder.

It looks like we will see dry weather through most of next week. 

In the short term, not much to really talk about.

Today, sunny and a nice winter day with highs in the 60s. 

Tonight maybe some sundowner winds in areas.
