Good Monday morning,

Wow that was quite the downpour last night around 10pm. The skies just opened up and dumped rain for a short period.

I am not sure if I believe this, but my weather station shows 1.36 for yesterday and .43 for today.

2 days before the funky Christmas.....

No excitement in the air for Christmas, but our weather has some.

Take a look at the satellite, there are a number of systems attempting to affect our weather and cause rain.

Today and tonight it is all about the off shore winds in Ventura to LA. This will create wind and fire danger once again.

Good Tuesday morning,

Our daylight will now be 1 to 2 minutes longer each day until June 21st.

Here is something fun and interesting that Aaron brought to my attention....

Did you know that during summer and winter equinox, it is easier to balance an egg on its edge.

Happy week before Christmas eave. OMG it is almost here...

Today we have a weak low pressure system bringing rain to the Bay Area and down the coast to SLO.

This is not a big rain maker for anyone.

1 to 1/4 inch in SLO and nothing for us.

Good Monday morning,

It has been a typical La Niña pattern so far this rainy season. All the storm track has stayed well to the north, even NorCal has remained quite dry so far. 

Today we wake to another round of wind. The low pressure system that passed through yesterday  is now over Nevada.

Good Friday morning, 

The weekend is upon us once again. Today we are waking to something we have not seen in quite awhile...Fog...

A weak system is pushing down the coast and is creating the onshore flow. This will allow only a cooler day.

Tonight the front washes through, and SB and northwest exposed areas will see some wind.

Good Thursday morning,

Going outside this morning you can smell the change. The onshore flow has brought back the smell of the Pacific Ocean. This will make for a cooler day.

Tonight a weak low passes through. This will draw the marine layer and create a foggy day Friday. Temps should be in the 60s and foggy.

Friday night the front passes and north winds will blow in SB and Santa Ynez.

Good Tuesday morning, 

Today, it is all about the warm temp and the winds. Yesterday the winds come up in the afternoon for all and the mercury climbed to 80 degrees late in the afternoon. 

Overnight, the wind affected most areas with peak gusts from 35 to 70 miles an hour. This made for a warm night. Most areas stayed in the 60s and 70s. Here is wind speeds in the mountains:

Today it will be windy, but more of a typical Santa Ana event. Ventura south will be quite windy through this afternoon, then the winds will back off.
