Good Saturday morning,

Wow, when was the last time you saw a graphic like this:

https://forecast.weather.gov/MapClick.php?x=192&y=118&site=lox&zmx=&zmy=&map_x=192&map_y=118

It certainly is a nice sight to see. Bring on the rain……

Today we will have basically a gloomy day, with fog and drizzle. Maybe a little light rain…Temps will also be on the cool side in the 60s.

Tonight the weak low pressure system moves east and we will have a dry Sunday.

Sunday, a slight warm up and we will likely see some sun.

Sunday night the cut-off low that has been advertised for the past week will begin to move towards us.

Good Friday morning,

Here we are at the end of the work week, we will see a cooler weekend, then rain.

7-Day Forecast

Starting out today, the marine layer has blanketed over us. Fog will likely hang in most of the day, keeping us cooler.

Tonight the weak low pressure system to the north drops over us. This will bring a deeper Maine layer and some drizzle possible Saturday morning.

Good Thursday morning, 

The marine layer has descended upon us, creating fog 1800 feet and below.

The marine layer will burn off around lunch time and we will see cooler temps today. 

To the south, a weak off shore flow still exists, so some warming there.

Friday will be a carbon copy of today with some fog and cooler temps in the 60s.

Good Tuesday morning,

Yes, morning came early after 4 hours of sleep, but it is nice to be home ....I think!!!

Today the forecast is all about the off shore flow and Santa Ana winds. This will make for a warm day in LA and Santa Ana wind prone areas.

Some areas will reach the low 80s. For us, we are looking at mid 70s, but a great overall day.

Wednesday off shore flow to start, then onshore in the afternoon. This will bring back the marine layer.

Good Monday morning,

Yes, I am late today with the forecast. I need to get back on California time….

Sunday provided the first rain in sometime. The rain totals came in .15 to .20 depending on where you live.

The rain is over and we are ready to warm up again for the week. Each day out, temps will rise and high pressure and off shore flow builds in again.

Marching into a new month..... 

As the first day of March arrives, we have a chance for some rain. Sadly it is not a storm that we want with only light rain in the forecast.

This low pressure system also will bring us cold air, lowering our snow levels to 2500 feet tonight and Monday morning.

Good Friday morning,

Hope everyone is well. It appears your weather has been warmer than mine here in Hawaii.

Where upper 70s and 80s have been the Norm for you. This will begin to change over the weekend.

Today you will see one more day of above normal temps with highs again in the upper 70s and low 80s.

Tonight a warm night with lows around 60.

New National Kobe Bryant day 😀

Also the first day of a heat wave in February..... 

Yes, another disappointment over the weekend with the lack of rain.

The only excitement was in the Montecito hills where a thunder storm caused hail for a short time.

Good Sunday morning,

The rain Saturday was another dud. Enough to get the streets wet and see the rain in the hills. Other than that...another reminder that 2020 has turned dry. 

Big winner is old man mountain with .26 inches.
