South Coast Basks in Summer-Like Weather but It May Be a Memory by Midweek

Sunshine reigns over the weekend but rain is in the forecast beginning Thursday

A blizzard was pummeling the Midwest, and the roof fell in — literally — on the Minnesota Vikings when the Metrodome’s Teflon canopy collapsed under the weight of accumulated snow early Sunday.

In Santa Barbara, however, it was a beautiful summer day ... in December.

Sunday’s high temperature reached 75 degrees, but that wasn’t the hottest Dec. 12 in Santa Barbara history. That record was set in 1956 when the mercury hit 88.

According to the National Weather Service, Monday’s forecast calls for high temperatures around 70 degrees with sunny skies and calm winds. Enjoy it while it lasts as the weather is expected to begin cooling down Tuesday, with showers possible by the end of the week.

The weather service said Tuesday will be mostly sunny with a high near 65 degrees and Wednesday should be partly sunny with a high around 60.

Beginning on Thursday, there’s a chance of rain expected through Sunday. High temperatures are expected to be in the upper 50s and low 60s through the weekend.

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!
