Jack's Weather Report


By Jack Martin on Jun 25, 2019 at 02:51 PM

Another wet start to the day.

It has been the dampest June I can remember. Every morning seems to start with drizzle, today is the same.

Streets are all wet again. This trend continues through the week.

Low pressure system is spinning over the pacific northwest, keeping the marine layer strong and temps chilly.


No need for AC this week…you might need an umbrella this morning.

Good Monday morning,

What a treat we had on Saturday and Sunday. The sun started to peak out by 10 am. It made for a great day at the parade.

It was so much fun at the parade watching my 16 month old granddaughter loving the parade.

Today will be the same as yesterday. Sun will come out early and it will be a nice day. Summer weather is starting to arrive.


6/21/19 Summer Solstice

Welcome to Summer... ( I think 🤔!)

Today is the longest day of the year, but it will be with day light, not sunshine if you live along the coast. Someday we will be able to go to vandenburg and rocket 3000 feet in the air to see the sun on this day. I guess we could go the the airport and do the same today. This season has been quite the change from what we have been used to over the past 5 years. June gloom has been over us most of the month and May Gray produced more rain then we have ever seen in history. The good news is it is the 21st of June, and truly the summer is coming. Around September we will all be wishing for a day like today.

Good gloomy Wednesday morning,

June gloom is at full strength. Streets are wet and fog is at 2500 to 3000 feet thick.

If you look at the satellite you would think we had clear skies, but coastal fog is blanketing the first 3000 feet. 


If you want warm and sunshine, go to palm springs. Check out the temps there. Amazing how a short distance can have a 30 to 40 degrees difference.

Good Tuesday morning,

Take a look at the satellite. you can see the clouds passing over us today and creating a weak on shore flow. Also look way to the south in the southern pacific.

The tropical Action is beginning to arrive, but nothing as far as storms yet. 


3 days till summer solstice, Friday the 21st.  Unfortunately it will not feel like summer on Friday in SB or most of California.

It will actually be the coldest day in the next 7. 5 to 10 degrees below normal.

Good Monday morning, 

I hope everyone had a great Father’s Day weekend, to spite the damp weather here. 

It looks like a typical June gloom week, with temps below normal and fog through the week. 

Today will be more of the same, everything is wet out there this morning. Clearing will be slow and some coastal areas will not clear at all. 

Tuesday, off shore flow arrives. This will lead to clearing earlier in the afternoons.

Happy Friday, 

A big weekend ahead for grads and dads. UCSB will have their annual graduation outdoors.

Everyone attending will be happy to have fog and a cool weekend. 

Today, the marine layer has increased to 2500 feet.

This will blanket the coastal and valleys this morning, keeping us cool with clearing later from the valleys to the coast. 

Clearing will be tough in some coastal areas at all today. The one exception is the SB coast.

Good Thursday the 13th,

It was a welcome cooler day on Wednesday. This cooling trend will continue though Friday, then rebound slightly over the weekend.

Today we are looking at the marine layer at 1400 feet. This will drift into the valleys and keep everyone cooler today.

The marine layer will burn off in the valleys late this morning, then in SB in the afternoon.

This will cool us off more. Highs around 70 in Santa Barbara and inland in the low 80s. Overall perfect working weather.

Friday will be pretty much a carbon copy of today. Fog and cooler... 

Grads and dads weekend!!

Good Wednesday morning, 

What a great few days we have had, as we welcomed back summer like weather. 

If you were as lucky as I was, you saw great summer like weather at the bowl last night, and what a show....

Train was fantastic..... going down as one of the 5 best shows I have ever seen there. 

This morning, we are waking to fog.

Good Tuesday morning, 

It is going to be another hot day, everywhere...

I feel like I must be on vacation, because the weather has done a 180 from what we have been used to. Yesterday it was down right hot in Santa Ynez with a high of 106. 

Santa Barbara was also very warm in the upper 80s. Today is going to be another really warm day. Highs will be in the upper 80s and low 90s in SB. Valleys will also be hovering in the 100 degree area, however, cooling is on the way.
