Monday Morning Again

By Jack Martin on Sep 16, 2019 at 03:52 PM

Good Monday morning, 

The work week is going to be nice with cooler temps all week.

Looking at the satellite, you can see the front washing out from the north as it approaches California.

This has increased the on shore flow and brought in a 1300 foot marine layer. This will keep us cooler for the day, with fog until late morning.

Highs for the day will be around 80.

Was it hot enough for you yesterday? After a start of 60 degrees on Friday, the temp rose to 93 degrees in SB. This hot weather will continue through the weekend. 


Weekend Weather

Good Friday morning,

This graphic pretty much spells it out.


This weekend is going to be Hot. Especially in Santa Ynez and all valley areas. Looks like you will top the triple digits.

Santa Barbara is going to be hot also with highs in the upper 80s during the day, with mild nights.


Full Moon 9/12/19 and Warmer Weather on Tap

By Jack Martin on Sep 12, 2019 at 02:56 PM

Good Thursday morning, 

If you were not up early enough with me, here is what the full moon looked like at 4:30 AM. 

For our weather, you can see we are starting out with clear skies and soon to be sunny and warm conditions. High pressure is building back in and we will have hot weather through the weekend.

It is hard to believe it has been 17 years since 9/11. The memory of that morning is planted in my brain forever. I remember this morning like it was recent. 

Time flies too fast.... 

For us today, weather wise, there is low pressure in the Pacific Northwest. This is not doing much for us.

Good Monday morning, 

We survived the weekend winds with no real fires. There is a mulch fire in Goleta, but seems to be under control. 

From Mike: 

Winds did vary in areas throughout the weekend. It seems like the forecast worked out ok. Winds gusted to almost 70 mph above the gaviota tunnel, which probably means 30-40 at the rest stop, and the hills above Montecito gusted into the 40s.


9/8/19 Wind Update

By Jack Martin on Sep 09, 2019 at 03:43 PM

Good Sunday morning,

Winds last night made it as far south as the San Marcos Pass. SCE shut down the power on some 600 homes, north of Goleta.

The winds did come up in Goleta north, but Santa Barbara had little wind.

Today we will have another warm day, with another round of sundowner winds tonight from the Northwest.

Looks like winds will change to the Northeast around midnight and this will affect the Montecito hills.

Good Saturday morning, 

An interesting day and evening ahead. 

Low pressure is building in today. This is going to create some wind during the day, but the real event will be later in the day, evening until midnight. Winds today will be all over the board, Southwest, south. It changes this afternoon to west and northeast. Northeast winds will really affect the Montecito hills. Northwest winds affects Gaviota, Goleta and San Marcos Pass areas. 

The weather models are showing both solutions. We will have to see how this plays out for the wind event. 


9/6/19 Weekend Weather

By Jack Martin on Sep 09, 2019 at 03:37 PM

Today we will begin a transition into low pressure pushing the high pressure to the south. This will create WIND this evening and especially Saturday night.

Sundowner winds will come up this evening in Gaviota then move south to us on Saturday. This will give coastal areas winds in the evening of 15 to 30 miles an hour, mountains 40 to 50 miles an hour.
