Here Comes the Rain for the Rest of the Weekend

After a sunny Saturday, the remainder of the Presidents' Day holiday looks to be all wet.

Saturday’s temperatures were brisk but the skies were clear. According to the National Weather Service, South Coast conditions will take a turn for the worse Sunday afternoon as a new storm moves into the region from the Gulf of Alaska.

Sunday’s forecast includes a 30 percent chance of rain in late afternoon, increasing to 80 percent Sunday night, with heavy rainfall and thunderstorms possible. Winds are expected to increase throughout the day, gusting as high as 38 mph Sunday night. The high temperature will be 55.

On Monday, Presidents’ Day, rain and possibly a thunderstorm are expected, along with winds gusting to 44 mph and temperatures in the low 50s. The rain is forecast to taper off Tuesday, although a new storm is expected later in the week.

A fast-moving storm blew through the area Friday morning but was gone by early afternoon. The storm dropped snow levels to around 3,500 feet Friday, providing a photo opportunity for many as it dusted the Santa Ynez Mountains.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
