Good Monday morning,

The holiday spirt was really noticeable from my house last night.

Naturally with the sunset and after dark with all the lights on homes.

The weather this week will be dry, but windy at times.

Winds will arrive today in Ventura south then move into Santa Barbara and Montecito tonight.

Welcome to December,

Hopefully just in time for Christmas we will see the vaccine. Our weather has certainly been Cooperating here, with warmer days.

There is a cold low pressure system plunging into Colorado bringing a big freeze.

For us it will only fuel another Santa Ana wind event. Ventura and areas south will begin to feel the winds tonight.

Good Friday morning,

5:01 am, we are allowed to leave our houses now. I know the curfew would only affect me at the early 5am hour, because I am sound asleep well before the start at 10pm 😊

Our weather between 5am to 10pm is going to be really nice through the weekend. High pressure is building in and a mild off shore event will keep us warm.

Good Thursday morning, 

Thanksgiving is one week away.....that came quick.... it will be nuts for online shopping this year. 

How about that big storm yesterday. Santa Barbara had a .004 as the system fell apart.

North county had .15, still not anything to speak of.

Good Tuesday morning,

OMG what a day we had on Monday. In Santa Barbara we had a high of 89 degrees and Camarillo broke a record at 95 degrees.

After the weather on Monday, it is hard to believe we are now going to talk about the rain. Well here is the next system. It will arrive later tonight.

Good Monday Morning,

What a great weekend it was, today however, is going to be the best day of the week.

The most incredible part of the weekend was the Beach. Low tide was an incredible -1.37 and today will be even slightly lower at -1.38 You have to get out there and see this amazing sight. You will view what divers see on the surface and open air.
