Very interesting weather out there right now.

There is a cut off low that started from the south and is now drifting over the central coast.

This does not pack a lot of moisture, but cooler days and chances of thunder storms are possible over night.

Rain is likely over north county of SLO.

Today we will see typical low clouds, but the base is higher than typical. All valleys and coastal areas will start out with fog.

Today we will see the fog stick around longer, with the fog stretching into some valleys this morning.

Clearing will occur later in the day, with areas right along the beaches remaining foggy all day in areas.

Good Tuesday morning,

I almost slipped and said Monday. I hope everyone had a nice 3 day weekend.

Most of us stayed at home and enjoyed the beach and new State street. I did both...

The fog will be our friend again this morning, allowing the coastal areas to keep cooler.

Look out in the valleys and in paso. It is going to be 90s with some triple digits.

Good Monday morning,

I hope everyone had a great Mother’s Day, for me it was special with my 2 daughters who are both due with baby girls in June.  Blakely my two-year-old granddaughter thinks she will be in charge.

Today we will welcome some May Gray weather. Yes, typical weather for this time of year has returned to the coastal areas.

Yesterday the marine layer never broke along the coast, just over the San Macros Pass it was sunny and 80 degrees.

This week we will see a similar pattern, with fog, drizzle, and damp morning the next few days.

Good Thursday morning,

You know what really heats me up??!!, besides the heat from the weather we are having, it is listening to the news and listening to the way some of the press reports the scare tactics on COVID.

So, I have to start with this one today. Yesterday and this Morning, the local news starts out, stating 70 new cases in Santa Barbara county.

Stating the biggest jump to date!!!!

What they mention only in the small print, is 65 of those cases were in the Lompoc Jail.

Personally I don’t count people that are locked up as a threat.

Also, take a look at 100% of the new cases. They are all in north county. NOT even 1 in Santa Barbara areas.
