Santa Barbara keeps the beach open

Despite a couple of systems pummeling the Pacific Northwest, it seemed as though Santa Barbara transcended all climatological concerns. The sun was out for the most part, but there were a few clouds to prevent too much sunburn in case anyone forgot the sunscreen.  In general, the flow off the Pacific was less robust than the forecast called for, which resulted in temperatures being a hair warmer than anticipated during the day. Overnight, however, the weaker flow meant clear skies, which are nice, right up until those temperatures start dropping. With no marine layer, overnight lows dropped to the upper 40s, which allowed Victoria-Weather to rise up and take the victory in the very pleasant Santa Barbara.
