Jack's Weather Report


By jack martin on Sep 22, 2023 at 05:34 PM

Good Friday morning,

A few interesting facts for today. Today is the equinox where we will have 12 hours of day light and 12 hours of darkness. Sadly, the days are getting shorter and November 5th is right around the corner when we turn our clocks a head and days really get shorter.

You can see some high clouds streaming over us thanks to former tropical storm Kenneth

Today high clouds and a very slight warm up. A few degrees of warming. High around 68 in SB. If you going to maroon 5 show you better pack a light jacket.

Santa Ynez will be a little warmer at 75 degrees.
The weekend will be good, but still cooler, highs in SB around the low 70s and valleys upper 70s to 80 degrees.

No exciting change for next week, still cooler until Wednesday when we get high pressure and warmer temps.

Enjoy the weekend, mark your calendar for 12:30 pm Saturday when Oregon Ducks meets Primetime and Colorado. It should be a great game. I say Oregon by 14 points.

Have a great weekend! See you at Maroon 5 later this afternoon if you going, it should be fun on the cliffs of Padaro Lane.

Good Thursday morning,

Another day of unseasonable cool weather, with high temps only 60s.

This is thanks to low-pressure rolling into our neck of the woods https://zoom.earth/.

This has brought in the marine layer at 5000 feet, this thicker marine layer will squeeze out some drizzle in some locations at around 20% for 05/100 of an inch, meaning just damp streets where it happens. The main thing today will be temps 10 to 20 degrees below normal. The low rolls through this afternoon and Friday will bring a slight warmup.

Still below normal temps but just 5 to 10 degrees. Saturday the remnants of tropical storm Kenneth will throw some high clouds our way. Nothing more then that with a pretty sunset Saturday night.

Sunday should be mostly clear and warmer as weak high pressure rolls in and warms us up. Sunday should be the nicest day of the past 7.

Monday another low starts its way down from the pacific northwest, bringing another round of cooler weather. no rain.

Wednesday looks like we might start a warmup through the rest of the week. In the meantime we will see if the drizzle starts up in the next few hours, regardless it will be quite a cool day.

Good Wednesday evening,

Yes a rare late afternoon weather update. It was an extremely busy day and I did not have a chance to sent the forecast till now, but I wanted to give the heads up on the damp morning that is coming Thursday.

The second low pressure system will drop south and create drizzle and light rain for us. Nothing crazy, but 05/100 of an inch is possible Thursday morning with light rain and drizzle. Here is the system dropping south

Thursday will be very cool with temps 15 to 20 degrees below normal with many areas with highs only in the 60s. It will be a damp start to the day.

Friday we will start a slight warm up thought the weekend. This might bring us to normal temps but barely. The past 7 days have been below normal temps and will continue for the next few days.

Warmer weather goes away next week as another Pacific Northwest storm affects the weather. No rain any further south the Northern California, but back to cooler weather. Button line, I can’t believe this is September. Crazy weather the past 2 months.

El Nino is coming, it should be a interesting January and February

Good thing is we still are 3 months to get ready.

Good Tuesday morning, 

A low-pressure system is just offshore spinning west of point conception. 

This system will move East tonight and cause some sundowner winds. 30 to 40 miles an hour at Gaviota and Goleta  https://zoom.earth/

Wednesday another low-pressure system will work its way from Canada toward us and deepen the marine layer once again, creating low clouds, fog, and drizzle possible, especially Thursday. It will also be quite cool with temps only in the 70s. 

Friday we finally start to move towards normal weather for this time of year. Temps will start to rebound for the weekend as high pressure takes over. It looks like a nice weekend, but a very slight chance for some subtropical moisture from the south. 

We will wait on that for now. Temps will still be slightly below normal for the weekend.

This morning was a cool start to the day, with 59 degrees. Highs today will be in the low to mid-70s. 

Enjoy a cool Tuesday and the rest of the work week

Just funky weather for September lingers through next week. 

Just crazy to think that our highs will be in the low 70s coastal and mid-70s in the valleys most of the week. 

Low pressure is off the central coast creating cool temps, fog and drizzle the next few days. Temps will be 4 to 8 degrees below normal along the coast and 8 to 15 degrees below normal in the valleys. Yesterday Paso Robles had a high of 76 degrees. Typically more like  96 this time of year. This is good news for outside workers. 


This low will move out and be replaced by another one Wednesday creating the same pattern all over again until Friday. 

On Friday we start to come out of this funk and we will gradually warm up, but it will be early the week after before we return to normal temps. 

Hard to believe that September has been this cool, we will see what October brings, but in my eyes, October is the best month of the year. 

Enjoy the cool weather, you might need a sweatshirt

Good Friday morning,

The weekend is almost upon us and cooler weather is the forecast for the weekend.

Looking over the entire country there is not much for action in weather other then the Atlantic ocean where Lee remains out in the Sea.


For us cool weather, low 70s for highs coastal, and upper 70s to low 80s in the valleys. 4 to 8 degrees below normal.

In the evening it is almost sweatshirt weather with 50s at night in the valleys especially.

Each day you will wake to fog, and low clouds, clearing to sun in the afternoons.

The same pattern really extends into next week with temps remaining below normal and even cooler 8 to 15 degrees below normal.

Enjoy the cooler days and nights.

Good Thursday morning,

Morning came too quick today after a fantastic Lumineers show at the Bowl last night.

The stage configuration was really great, bringing the members out onto the floor.

As far as the weather goes, it will be very fall like through the weekend. Fog low clouds and below normal temps Will keep us cool at night and highs along the coast in the low 70s, with valleys climbing into the low 80s. Right now a cool 57 in Santa Ynez and 61 in Santa Barbara.

If you look at zoom earth you will see the fog building into our coastal and valley locations. https://zoom.earth/maps/satellite/#view=26.7,-116.1,4.17z

Friday night there might even be some sundowner wind from Gaviota to Goleta.

For the weekend more cooler weather, but still perfect with typical fall weather.

The cooler weather will extend into next week. Where it is still September and our warmer season typically goes through October. It will be cooler than normal. I am sure as we approach October we will see some real warm days as we typically do. In the mean time enjoy the perfect weather.

Good Wednesday morning,

The forecast is all about fog, low clouds and cooler weather the rest of the week.

We will have onshore flow with cooler temps for all. Highs will be in the low 70s along the coast and low 80s in the valleys. Just perfect weather for anytime of year.

This is more June-like weather than September, but we will take it.

This cooling trend will continue through the week and into early next week.

Coastal expect night and morning low clouds and fog each day.

Looking on zoom earth you can see Cat 3 hurricane Lee in the Atlantic ocean, harming no one at this time along the coast. This looks to roll up the coast and we will see where it might hit/land in the northeast.

Enjoy the cooler weather, bring a light jacket if you’re heading to the Lumineers tonight at The Bowl.

Good Tuesday morning,

It is time to transition back to typical weather with less humidity and cooler temps.

This all begins today and will continue the cooling through the rest of the week. Expect 80s as a high today then 70s along the coast the rest of the week. Valleys mid 80s.

A nice break from the heat!

Good Monday morning,

Not a lot of changes since Sunday, so this will be a quick one.

One more day of humid air before we get back to normal.

Javo is starting its move to the west, further away from us https://zoom.earth/

Highs today will still be warm and humid for 1 more day. Coastal low 80s, valleys low 90s.

Starting Tuesday onshore flow returns and cooler temps are on tap for the rest of the work week.

Highs will drop each day through Thursday, bringing us back to the sweet 70s we prefer in Santa Barbara.

Valleys in the low 80s.

Enjoy the day, Don’t believe the news, rain is not likely today.
