Weak Front Brings Showers to Santa Barbara County

A weak warm front passing through the region brought light rain to Santa Barbara County on Sunday, but the showers were expected to taper off overnight and into the beginning of the work week.

Most areas were expected to receive between a tenth and a quarter of an inch of rain, according to meteorologist Rich Thompson with the National Weather Service in Oxnard.

The system “had a bit more oomph than what we were thinking of this morning,” Thompson told Noozhawk on Sunday afternoon.

Partly cloudy skies are expected Monday and Tuesday, Thompson said, with another weak front bringing a chance of rain Tuesday night and Wednesday.

“It doesn’t look like a big soaker at this point,” he added.

There is a further chance of rain next weekend, Thompson said, but computer forecast models showed a significant degree of uncertainty about that possibility.

Highs the next few days are expected to be in the low 60s, with overnight lows in the low 40s.

An advisory was issued for heavy surf and high tides expected from late Monday through Tuesday.

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!
