Wow, there goes the first month of the year. Sadly it was extremely dry with just rain on a few occasions.

It does look like we will end the month with mostly dry weather and no more rain.

Today a ridge will keep us warm, with some upper 60s and low 70s. Some mid level clouds will sweep across.

Good Thursday morning, 

We are on the back side of the work week now. It does look like nice weather will prevail into the weekend and warmer temps.

This will hopefully help everyone with colds and the Flu.” It is a nasty one”. Stay away from folks with it. Trust me you don’t want this one.

Good Tuesday morning, 

It looks like the sprinkles predicted on Monday did amount to a few 100s of an inch of wet stuff, enough to dampen the streets.

Good Friday morning,

It sure was nice of the rain to hold off until the end of the work day. Rain started up around 4:30 in the afternoon and fell till around 10pm. “well after my Bedtime ! :) “

We received around ½ of an inch in most locations from SLO to Ventura. The winner was San Marcos pass with almost an inch.

Today you will see a lot of high clouds with partly cloudy skies . highs in the upper 50s and lows in the 40s.

Good Thursday morning, 

Waking up this morning and walking outside you can smell the change in the air. 

It is the smell of damp air as our low pressure system starts to push our way. 

As discussed later yesterday, the rain will be delayed a bit to start off the day. 

It even looks like we might even be dry into the early afternoon.

Wednesday morning, 

Another Chilly start to the day, but a little warmer than yesterday. Tuesday frost was all over the roofs.

Today will be another nice day, but as you look at the satellite picture you can see our next wet event beginning to move our way.
