Good Saturday morning, 

Another chilly start to our day, but warmth is in our forecast for next week. 

Today we will see sunny skies and highs in the mid 60s again.

Tonight and Sunday, a weak system will bring a chance of rain, mainly to SLO and northern SB county.

It’s Friday, 

I know that does not mean the same any longer, but for me it is still a good thing. 

The wind last night is now over and the weather is calming down. 

The system that took its time moving though is now in the San Diego area. As forecast it really did not do much for rainfall. Ojai was the winner with .12.

Good Thursday morning, 

I hope everyone is waking virus free. Today that low pressure system is now moving into our area.

This is going to bring scattered showers to the area, with a northwest flow.

This means areas like Santa Barbara will be in a rain shadow due to our local mountains.

Areas in the central coast and Santa Ynez stand a better chance for rain.

Good Wednesday morning,

Our weather the entire month of March has been quite active.

The next 2 days will be no different, but rain totalS will be on the lighter side.

This is due to the showery nature of this next system. 

Right now the low pressure system is moving into Northern California from Oregon.

This is a colder system with snow levels dropping to 3000 over night Wednesday.

Good Monday morning,

It was a good storm Sunday afternoon and through the night.

Rain totals were good with most areas seeing around 1 inch of rain, with San Marcos Pass getting 2.18 inches and Montecito with 1.25 inches.


This system is now moving East and leaving us with light showers only. Showers should taper to almost none in the afternoon.

Good Sunday morning, 

Rain is on the way, you will have till around 2 pm, before dry turns to wet.

Low pressure is still 350 miles off point conception, so rain will stay away until the afternoon for Santa Barbara.

Rain in north county will start earlier, likely by noon.

Good Saturday morning, 

What a week we have had. Trying to keep up with all the Action on and off the weather front.

Today I need to get caught up with the weather since I was distracted yesterday trying to figure out if it was work as normal for the construction industry.

Thankfully it is essential according to California state government, as it should be.

Now the weather, there has been a lot of Action this past week. We certainly welcome the rains.

Good Thursday morning,

It really is not that bad….This crazy world we live in. At least some of us are sane…. I know I am….Not locked in my house…

Today is the first day of Spring, the smell of the flowers is going to make you all smile…..

Weather wise, that low that has been hanging around is now drifting south from the northeast.

Good Wednesday morning, 

It is chilly out there this morning. 32 degrees in Santa Ynez. It looks like we are going to see a few days of sunshine with shower possibilities in between.

The large low that influenced our weather Monday and Tuesday has split in 2 pieces. 1/2 is over Baja and moving slowly East.

This might cause a little rain in the LA area tonight. The other 1/2 is over Nevada and will drift towards us on Thursday.
