Good Tuesday morning, 

Did you see the full moon this morning? It was like a flashlight shinning in my window.

This morning we are starting out will mostly clear skies, but don’t be fooled, more rain is on the way. 

The low pressure system that has been parked over Northern California pumping subtropical moisture at us is shifted south and will begin to create more rain for us today and tonight.

Good wet Monday morning,

Great rain totals, especially on San Marcos Pass with 5.47 inches so FAR ….

The low pressure system is still well to the north and you can see the low pumping in the subtropical moisture over us from the south.

The heaviest rain is beginning to move south now and Ventura to LA will get the heavy rain that we have received.

Good Sunday morning, 

Are you ready for some Action? We will get it from this strong low pressure system. This is a large system, with all the ingredients for a big storm. Spinning over Nor Cal still:

Rain is as far south as Monterey right now.

Good Saturday morning,

Blue skies and sunny weather today, but a strong winter storm is going to bring us heavy rain Sunday later in the afternoon.

Here is the low just now coming into northern California.

Today we will have a nice day with highs in the upper 60s.

Good Friday morning, 

It is going to be the nicest day in the next 7. So enjoy it, because it will change on Sunday.

Today we have weak off shore flow, which will make for a nice warm day, highs in the upper 60s and some low 70s.

Great day to get off work early .... Dina that means you on your birthday, I am for sure. 

Saturday we will start with the off shore flow, then turn to on shore as the storm system nears us.

Here is what it looks like from the sky, you can see the low pressure system brewing on the satellite.

Good Thursday morning, 

Not a lot of excitement with the weather the next few days except for high surf on the central coast today, however, look out for late in the weekend. It is looking like we will see lots of rain, especially in Santa Barbara.

This system is still well to the north and will take its time getting here.

Good morning, 

It is that day. April Fools! With all joking aside, I hope there are not April Fools jokes today. None from me at least.

Yesterday was a great warm day. Highs were in the mid 70s . It  was nice to think that warmer weather is on its way. 

Today, however, will be a little cooler as off shore weakens and onshore comes back.

Today will bring highs in the upper 60s, with the central coast cooling off around 10 degrees from yesterday.

Good Tuesday morning,

Here we go. The last day of March, with a new month starting Wednesday.

March will end a long month with a great day, we will see the warmest day of this week.

Highs should be in the 70s everywhere, due to off shore winds. areas to the south will even see warmer weather.

With some Santa Ana winds, our weather will continue to be nice all week, but Wednesday night, winds should shift to the northwest and create some sun downer winds here in SB.

Good Monday morning,

Last Monday in March, and we do NOT have any chances of rain in the forecast this week.

As a matter of fact, it will be spring in the air all week with warmer temps. It looks like all areas will see 70s all week long.

High pressure has built in and we will see off shore flow, with some Northeast winds in the Ventura south areas.

Good Sunday morning, 

It is always great to wake up in Santa Barbara in these unsettled times.

I go through my morning mental check list, sore throat ? No 😊  It is going to be a good day.

I was at Hendry’s beach yesterday, it was nice to get out. Seeing everyone practicing good social distancing, and enjoying something we all love.

We ordered food and drinks of course from the Boathouse To Go and sat 6 feet apart on the beach.
