Good Thursday morning,

A weak system is approaching from the north. This is closer to the coast (westerly) so it will bring some light rain to areas to the north. Light rain is likely.

You can see this moving from north to south. Rain will arrive in SLO and northern Santa Barbara county into Santa Ynez later this morning.

It does look like chances of rain drop off south of point conception. Santa Barbara has a 30% chance and in Ventura, rain is not in the forecast.

The best chance will be Thursday afternoon. Santa Ynez 40% Santa Barbara 30%.

Good Tuesday morning,

What a day it was on Monday. Santa Barbara hit a high of 77 degrees after starting out quite chilly. This was thanks to Santa Ana winds warming us up.

Today the off shore Santa Ana winds will continue, but will weaken. This will allow less wind in Ventura and south.

It will also allow temps to drop into the lower 70s for a high. Still above normal and a great day.

Wednesday an inside slider arrives. This will bring no rain, but north winds will be back.

Good Monday morning, 

The wind blew pretty hard last night. This morning when I went outside, it was quite a mess.

Winds today will die down in SB and transfer south to Ventura and wind prone Santa Ana locations.

Wind will begin to fall off on Tuesday, except for Santa Clara.

The good news is it will warm up as the day goes on. Highs today will be in the upper 60s, unless you are lucky enough to be in Jamaica, it will be 89 degrees.

Good Friday morning,

Days are all out of wack Thanks to the holiday. 

You can see high pressure over us, pushing the clouds to the north over Oregon.

Today we will see wind to our south and warm temps for all with highs in the low 70s coastal and upper 70s in the valleys. Maybe even a few 80s.

Good Thursday morning,

Hope everyone had a good mid week New Years. A 1 day stop to work, now it is time to pick it up again.

The good news is this year is a leap year, so Christmas and New Years will land on a Friday in 2020.

Today the winds that picked up last night will lessen by the afternoon, then shift to the northeast over Ventura and south.

Welcome to 2020. Wow a new decade.....thanks for the great photo Adam. 

This is a good way to remember the last decade.

To start out our 2020 we will have relatively great weather other than some wind in areas.

Temps for the next week will be normal to above normal. We will even see some 70s at the end of the week.

New Year’s Eve day, 

The last day of this decade. We will be moving into 2020’s for the next 10 years.

Wow, I remember the 2000s like it was just a few years back. Time flies.... 

If you were up with me this morning, I watched 2020 arrive in Sydney, Australia.

Quite the fireworks there. Google them, pretty cool.

Good Monday morning, 

Low pressure has moved south and now is creating some rain and lighter showers. 

The low pressure system has drifted further to the west than predicted. This is very visible on the satellite view:

Because the low is further off shore, Ventura will just see a trace of rain and LA no rain.
