Saturday evening forecast Feb 22.

Finally, Mother Nature delivered some light moisture to the region. Unfortunately, not very much fell, with most areas seeing just trace amounts at best. However, just above Montecito, a thunderstorm did drop close to an inch for a few remote rain gauges. Most of the moisture has pushed south and east with just a small chance for more as we head in to the late night and early morning hours of Sunday.
A breezy and even gusty northerly flow will develop behind the storm system. For now there are now watches or advisories for wind, but that could change for Sunday or even Monday. A High Surf Advisory will be in effect from Sunday through Tuesday for much of the Central Coast. Waves could easily be up to and above 10-feet along west and northwest facing beaches. Some morning fog and lingering storm clouds should clear out quickly on Sunday and temperatures will notch up at least a few degrees. Look for highs to be in the 60's to right around 70-degrees.
Looking ahead, skies will continue to clear and temperatures warm as we head in the last week of February. Again, this current weather system as meager as it is, will be about it for the entire month! High pressure sill be in control with warm temperatures and plenty of sunshine. A trough of low pressure will approach the Pacific Northwest by next weekend. But, at this time we see no rain yet as we head in to March!
