Jack's Weather Report

Good Friday morning, 

It is going to be the nicest day in the next 7. So enjoy it, because it will change on Sunday.

Today we have weak off shore flow, which will make for a nice warm day, highs in the upper 60s and some low 70s.

Great day to get off work early .... Dina that means you on your birthday, I am for sure. 

Saturday we will start with the off shore flow, then turn to on shore as the storm system nears us.

Here is what it looks like from the sky, you can see the low pressure system brewing on the satellite.

Good Thursday morning, 

Not a lot of excitement with the weather the next few days except for high surf on the central coast today, however, look out for late in the weekend. It is looking like we will see lots of rain, especially in Santa Barbara.

This system is still well to the north and will take its time getting here.

Good morning, 

It is that day. April Fools! With all joking aside, I hope there are not April Fools jokes today. None from me at least.

Yesterday was a great warm day. Highs were in the mid 70s . It  was nice to think that warmer weather is on its way. 

Today, however, will be a little cooler as off shore weakens and onshore comes back.

Today will bring highs in the upper 60s, with the central coast cooling off around 10 degrees from yesterday.

Good Tuesday morning,

Here we go. The last day of March, with a new month starting Wednesday.

March will end a long month with a great day, we will see the warmest day of this week.

Highs should be in the 70s everywhere, due to off shore winds. areas to the south will even see warmer weather.

With some Santa Ana winds, our weather will continue to be nice all week, but Wednesday night, winds should shift to the northwest and create some sun downer winds here in SB.

Good Monday morning,

Last Monday in March, and we do NOT have any chances of rain in the forecast this week.

As a matter of fact, it will be spring in the air all week with warmer temps. It looks like all areas will see 70s all week long.

High pressure has built in and we will see off shore flow, with some Northeast winds in the Ventura south areas.

Good Sunday morning, 

It is always great to wake up in Santa Barbara in these unsettled times.

I go through my morning mental check list, sore throat ? No 😊  It is going to be a good day.

I was at Hendry’s beach yesterday, it was nice to get out. Seeing everyone practicing good social distancing, and enjoying something we all love.

We ordered food and drinks of course from the Boathouse To Go and sat 6 feet apart on the beach.

Good Saturday morning, 

Another chilly start to our day, but warmth is in our forecast for next week. 

Today we will see sunny skies and highs in the mid 60s again.

Tonight and Sunday, a weak system will bring a chance of rain, mainly to SLO and northern SB county.

It’s Friday, 

I know that does not mean the same any longer, but for me it is still a good thing. 

The wind last night is now over and the weather is calming down. 

The system that took its time moving though is now in the San Diego area. As forecast it really did not do much for rainfall. Ojai was the winner with .12.

Good Thursday morning, 

I hope everyone is waking virus free. Today that low pressure system is now moving into our area.

This is going to bring scattered showers to the area, with a northwest flow.

This means areas like Santa Barbara will be in a rain shadow due to our local mountains.

Areas in the central coast and Santa Ynez stand a better chance for rain.

Good Wednesday morning,

Our weather the entire month of March has been quite active.

The next 2 days will be no different, but rain totalS will be on the lighter side.

This is due to the showery nature of this next system. 

Right now the low pressure system is moving into Northern California from Oregon.

This is a colder system with snow levels dropping to 3000 over night Wednesday.
