I went to the pumpkin patch with my family yesterday and it was over 80 degrees! We were sweating in shorts and t-shirts trying to pick out pumpkins. When is the cooler fall weather going to arrive?

Where's the Fall Weather?

Was it last November that we had a couple 90ºF days? I, too, remember Thanksgivings/Xmases on the beach, enjoying amazingly warm temperatures. There has been only one Halloween night I can recall in the past decades which wasn't cold cold, so I expect that this Halloween we shall see cooler weather and then a bit more heat in November, just to keep us on our toes.

We are totally preparing for a wet "winter" at our house in Santa Barbara. We put a new roof on the house, and installed quite a number rain barrels (six barrels at last count!!). We have cleaned out the gutters and made sure the downspouts are free of debris. Last year we drove to the Bay Area via Hwy 154, and on our way up we were sad to see how low the water level was at Cachuma. On our way back two weeks later, holy schlamoly....the lake was nearly filled up (at least to our eyes....we later found out that the level had gone from around 6% to over 50% in that short period of time). Cannot wait to see the dam spill into the mighty ol' Santa Ynez River. Be prepared for the worst; hope for the best!

I assume, with good reason, that you're new to town/S. CA. As many articles about the N. CA fires have said, Oct. is a high temp month. I also remember bbq-ing for Turkey or Xmas Day in the 80's. Enjoy!

I haven't checked the buzzards lately, but some white crowned sparrows showed up in my yard for the first time last week, so divide that by 2, add one brown lawn, which equals cooler weather Wed/Thur and then back to pumpkin roasting weather early next week.

Welcome to CA. The “good” news is that we don’t get snow, either.

Fall pattern weather according to NWS is about to begin in next few days! Adjust your expectations as 2017 has been meaasured as the hottest year on record since they began measuring well over 100 years ago.

A couple (2) of rainstorms will not simply "topoff" the damn. Fantasies are fun aren't they..

Yes, life IS imitating reality TV because we have a reality TV "star" (if you could even call him that) as a.....barf, gag....president. I wish THAT was fake news.

The purveyors of FAKE NEWS are everywhere. Once honesty was held in high regard but of late being duplicitous trumps integrity by a long shot. Life imitating reality tv.

A couple rainstorms will top off Bradbury Dam, and then all will be good. Cachuma is such a gem of a place, which has everything: day use, picnic sites, kayaking, fishing, wildlife viewing, hurts, cabins, hiking, and the store stocks fishing supplies, wide selection of canned goods, snacks, beverages ...beer...yes...wine...you bet.... Keep in mind that Cachuma is only minutes away from dowtown Santa Barbara, so fuel costs and travel time are MINIMAL!!!I like to grab a hot coffee at the Cachuma store and grab a danish or donut, and then enjoy a lake view from any number of convenient benches. So nice and peaceful!!!

A couple rainstorms? Maybe if there's 10 inches in each one....It takes a lot of storms to begin to fill the lake. Hope it happens, but a couple storms are not going to do it.

Never...jk probably by the end of November IF it happens or it could stay this way which would put us right back where we were in 2015-16 . Fighting about watering lawns and other water issues. I'm praying for cool temps and rain!!!
