Windy Tuesday

By Jack Martin on Apr 09, 2019 at 03:17 PM

Good Tuesday morning, 

What a day, warm winds heated the temps to 91 degrees near  San Marcas Pass. 

Wow those winds last night were crazy all night. Yesterday at 5 pm I was struggling not to blow off a roof in San Antonio creek area.

Gusts last night had to be in excess of 60 miles an hour. 


Today wind with temps returning to normal in the 70s, but winds will remain 20 to 30 today. Then tonight look out again.


4/8/2019 Week's Weather

By Jack Martin on Apr 08, 2019 at 02:58 PM

Good Monday morning, 

Time for a new work week. Spring weather is prevailing once again. 

This week will be no different. We will see the tail end of a few systems which will create wind and a slight chance of rain, mainly over the mountains. 

Today will be warm and sunny with some wind from the east. Typical Santa Ana event.


Tonight a weak system drops south. This will cool us off. 

Tuesday the weak system can create some showers, mainly over the mountains.

The main event will be the wind. Northwest winds will blow pretty good Tuesday afternoon through mid day Wednesday.


Weekend Weather

Good Friday morning,

The first weekend in April will bring us typical spring weather. Then a nice warm up Sunday and Monday.

If you look at the satellite picture, it looks like rain would be possible. https://www.ssd.noaa.gov/goes/west/nepac/h5-loop-wv.html

But, It is that time of year. where low pressure systems pack less impact to our area. The past few systems is a perfect example of this.

Todays system will follow the same path. Today rain will fall in the central coast, but it will struggle to get around point conception.

Any rain that does will be on the light side, meaning 1/10 of an inch Santa Barbara and south. The central coast could see ¼ to 1/3 in northern areas.


Spring Showers

Good morning, 

Happy birthday Dina. For your 40th, there will be a weak ridge over us.

Nice day, but lots of high and mid level clouds.

Thursday the first of 2 lows starts to move in. Looks like we could have some dampness each morning with some drizzle is possible. Even a slight chance of rain, but mostly to the north. 

Friday more of the same, as the second low arrives.

This one gives us a better chance of rain in the afternoon, however most should remain in the central coast.

Possibly a 1/10 for us, and 1/4 in SLO.

Good Tuesday morning, 

Monday must have been lonely without my report. I felt the same way after a fun weekend in Vegas.

Onto better things.

Today, a very weak system will bring temps down 10 to 12 degrees from Monday. 

As far as rain goes, maybe some light drizzle along the foothills. It will remain cooler and any rain should stay north of point conception.

Good Saturday morning,

Are we ready for a great weekend? Last night I sat outdoors till 9 pm, enjoying the great spring night. Sonos and fire pit helped make the great weather perfect.

As we all know this is going to be the perfect weekend. So there is nothing more to say.

Fun facts Saturday:

Santa Barbara has 128% of average rainfall for the year, Cachuma is at 78%, Sunday will be above 80 degrees. Maybe a new record.



3/29/19 Weekend Weather

By Jack Martin on Mar 29, 2019 at 03:58 PM

Good Friday morning,

The weekend is fast approaching and warmer weather will be part of it.

Yesterday we had those northwest winds start up in the afternoon and blow into the evening.

Winds are calm now, but we will have 1 more evening of sundowner northwest winds.

Expect winds around 35 miles an hour from the northwest, with Gaviota peaking at 50 miles an hour late in the day.

Saturday, the winds turn to the northeast and Ventura south get the wind. This will also heat up the air with a good off shore wind event.

Good Thursday morning, 

Yesterday was Wednesday, so you know it had to rain.... 

That was fun yesterday for a few hours of some light to moderate rain. 

On the south coast, Santa Barbara was the big winner with 1/4 inch of rain. Most other areas on the south coast got 1/10 or slightly more.

The central coast was the winner with 1/3 to 3/4 of an inch.

Today, one more system, but this will only bring rain in Monterey and north. For us cooler, with below normal temps. 

Tonight, sundowner winds. The front washes through and creates typical northwest winds at Jack’s house. 


Friday, high pressure builds in. We will start a warm up for the weekend.

Good Wednesday morning, 

Here is the low spinning off the coast north of us:


Any rain out of this system will create only showers south of point conception. 

The low will drop south towards us by noon and give us some light showers. 

Any rain will result in very low accumulation. Looking at 1/10 to 1/4 at best in Santa Barbara and Ventura. LA will likely see only clouds and no rain. 

Tonight there still will be a chance of showers, but not much of anything.
