The National Weather Service (NWS) warns potential thunderstorms could reach Santa Barbara.

Monsoon moisture is bringing a threat of thunderstorms to portions of southwest California through Friday. Any storms that develop will be capable of producing brief heavy downpours with isolated flash flooding possible, as well as strong erratic wind gusts, reports NWS.

While the alert includes Ventura, Santa Barbara, and possibly San Luis Obispo Counties, current forecasts for Santa Barbara do not include thunderstorm or monsoon weather.

Current forecasts predict cloudy and sunny weather in Santa Barbara with temperatures in the high 70's and low 80's.

Humidity and monsoonal patters. Heat Index higher, "feels like" is what to look at when checking weather. For 93110 (Hope Ranch area), here are temps predicted next week: Monday--Sunny, with a high near 93. Monday Night--Mostly clear, with a low around 69. Tuesday--Sunny, with a high near 93. Tuesday Night--Mostly clear, with a low around 72. Wednesday--Sunny and hot, with a high near 96.

Yesterday, some cells dissipated before they even reached SB. While anything is possible with monsoonal patterns, given the usual weather patterns around here, it is unlikely. I would LOVE a good thunderstorm but in my experience, very unlikely (I hope I'm wrong)
