4/12/19 Weather

By Jack Martin on Apr 12, 2019 at 02:52 PM

Good windy Friday morning,

This work week started with wind and will end with it. The good news is nice weather will prevail for most of the weekend.

Today the winds will start to tail off. Winds will diminish later this morning.

This afternoon, northwest winds change to northeast winds. Ventura south will take over the winds.

Saturday, just a perfect windless day in Santa Barbara. Warm and sunny as high pressure and off shore winds bring a great day.

This week has been all about the wind. This trend will continue through Friday,then we will have a great weekend. 

Today, the winds will actually calm for the day, but they will be back tonight with another sundowner event on tap.

Tonight and Friday morning, an inside slider will drop from the north.


This will really do nothing more than bring the heavier winds back again. 

My pool has really taken a beating this week. Marcos is going to hate cleaning my pool on Friday.

Speaking of Friday.

Good Wednesday morning, 

It has been a windy week so far, with more to come.

It does appear the worst is finally over for us at least. It will remain windy in the foothills and mountains today.


Today will be windy, but winds will slow to 10 to 20 mile gusts at a time along the coastal areas. The hills will still remain windy.

Thursday, the winds drop off everywhere to become just breezy. A nice day overall.


Windy Tuesday

Good Tuesday morning, 

What a day, warm winds heated the temps to 91 degrees near  San Marcas Pass. 

Wow those winds last night were crazy all night. Yesterday at 5 pm I was struggling not to blow off a roof in San Antonio creek area.

Gusts last night had to be in excess of 60 miles an hour. 


Today wind with temps returning to normal in the 70s, but winds will remain 20 to 30 today. Then tonight look out again.


4/8/2019 Week's Weather

By Jack Martin on Apr 08, 2019 at 02:58 PM

Good Monday morning, 

Time for a new work week. Spring weather is prevailing once again. 

This week will be no different. We will see the tail end of a few systems which will create wind and a slight chance of rain, mainly over the mountains. 

Today will be warm and sunny with some wind from the east. Typical Santa Ana event.


Tonight a weak system drops south. This will cool us off. 

Tuesday the weak system can create some showers, mainly over the mountains.

The main event will be the wind. Northwest winds will blow pretty good Tuesday afternoon through mid day Wednesday.


Weekend Weather

By Jack Martin on Apr 05, 2019 at 09:43 PM

Good Friday morning,

The first weekend in April will bring us typical spring weather. Then a nice warm up Sunday and Monday.

If you look at the satellite picture, it looks like rain would be possible. https://www.ssd.noaa.gov/goes/west/nepac/h5-loop-wv.html

But, It is that time of year. where low pressure systems pack less impact to our area. The past few systems is a perfect example of this.

Todays system will follow the same path. Today rain will fall in the central coast, but it will struggle to get around point conception.

Any rain that does will be on the light side, meaning 1/10 of an inch Santa Barbara and south. The central coast could see ¼ to 1/3 in northern areas.


Spring Showers

Good morning, 

Happy birthday Dina. For your 40th, there will be a weak ridge over us.

Nice day, but lots of high and mid level clouds.

Thursday the first of 2 lows starts to move in. Looks like we could have some dampness each morning with some drizzle is possible. Even a slight chance of rain, but mostly to the north. 

Friday more of the same, as the second low arrives.

This one gives us a better chance of rain in the afternoon, however most should remain in the central coast.

Possibly a 1/10 for us, and 1/4 in SLO.
