Good Friday morning,

It was a nice day Thursday, until the wind came up in the evening. Driving home after work, it was 77 degrees last night.

The weather will be just fantastic today. Highs will be in the 70s and some 80s, but more winds tonight again.

Good Thursday morning,

Nice weather on tap for all, ”with the exception” of the winds.

Last night was great, sitting outside in the warm air. It is feeling like the change of seasons is here.

If you were at Refugio last night, you would know the winds were blowing 50 miles an hour.

Even some Montecito hills are feeling the winds.

Good Wednesday morning,

Just nice weather out there, with lots of sunshine.

Highs each day will climb a few degrees through Friday, then relax for the weekend.

Good Tuesday morning, 

Not a lot to say today since there are very few changes from yesterday.

Winds will continue for the next few days, they will be relatively light.

Good Wednesday morning,

The last day of the month. On Thursday we will welcome April.

Yesterday the onshore flow delayed the onset of the Santa Ana wind event, but it is here now.

Today we will warm up substantially with most areas in the upper 70s and low 80s.

The winds are rising in Ventura and South. This will create a windy and warm day for those locations.

Good Thursday morning, 

Yesterday was a nice warm day in SB and a windy day to the south. 

Today brings another day of spring weather, and the next inside slider. 

Today will be quite cool and breezy at times.

The fog layer is building into the Santa Ynez valley and will drop south today.

Some areas will struggle to see sunshine.

Happy Saint Patrick’s day,

It has been 1 year to the day, that Restraunt dining was shut down.

It is nice to see that today will be the first day that they are able to have inside dining again. 

Hopefully,  this is the beginning of the end of this chapter in our lives. 

Today will also be a nice day, with highs in the low to mid 60s. Some high clouds this morning, but lots of sunshine.

Good Tuesday morning, 

The rain is gone, and low pressure has moved over Las Vegas. 

Last night brought a nice rainbow as I was leaving work.

Today we have one more day of wind, then we are in for a break in weather.

Clear skies and no rain is the forecast for the next 7 days.


Today will be breezy with highs in the low 60s. Still chilly, but we are moving in the right direction.

Good damp Monday morning,

As we rise this morning, you will find damp streets. 

A weak low-pressure system has brought us rain as advertised overnight.

It is more like a Seattle rain, light and drizzly. My weather station has received 6/100th of an inch. This is right on target as we expected 1/10th of an inch to a max of 1/4th inch.


Rain this morning will quickly clear out and work it’s way south.

Good Thursday morning, 

What excitement we had last night in Santa Barbara. I do not remember ever seeing snow or hail that accumulated over 1/2 an inch. That was pretty amazing from Santa Barbara. If you missed it you can see it on my Instagram page, @action_jackk

Today that low pressure system has moved very slowly. It is still off the coast and will bring rain and snow in the form of showers today.
