Good Monday morning,

If you liked the weather on Easter Sunday, you are really going to enjoy the next 3 days.

I went to brunch at the boathouse. Wow was it nice there. They were packed with folks all dressed up in Easter egg colors, and the beach was packed too, like it was a summer day. 

The only down side to the next 3 days is most of us need to go to work. 

High pressure and a mild Santa Ana wind event is going to warm us up each day. 

Today we should see temps around 80 degrees with lots of sunshine.

Right now the only fog is in the Santa Ynez area, but that will clear quickly.

Easter Sunday Forecast

By Jack Martin on Apr 22, 2019 at 03:34 PM

Good Sunday morning and Happy Easter,

I guess spoke to soon yesterday when I said the drizzle missed Us. Shortly after I sent out the report, there it was.

I Hope the Easter egg hunters did not get too wet on Saturday.

Good Saturday morning,

Looks like Santa Barbara escaped the drizzle this morning. That’s great news for any kids going to the Easter egg hunt at Elings Park.

However, it is chilly out there so dress them warm. It starts at 9am. If that’s too early for you, there is another one at La Cumbre mall at 10 am.

Today will remain on the cooler side. Fog and low clouds will be around till noon, then the sun will prevail and warm us up.

Tonight looks like the wind will come up. We are expecting a north sundowner wind.

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.

https://www.ssd.noaa.gov/goes/west/nepac/h5-loop-wv.html

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.
