At last the long holiday weekend has arrived, and our forecast is shaping up to be a nice one. Areas of patchy fog will be possible Saturday morning for coastal areas north of Santa Barbara. To the south, the marine layer isn't expected to re-develop until later this weekend. Temperature wise on Saturday...daytime highs will warm into the 60s and 70s.
By Sunday, the marine layer is expected to become better organized. This should bring back a more typical May Gray pattern, with areas of low clouds and fog during the morning hours, followed by hazy sunshine for the afternoon hours. Daytime highs from Sunday into Memorial Day look pleasant and comfortable, ranging from the 60s at the cooler beaches to the 70s for the valleys and the Santa Barbara South Coast. High pressure develops late next week, with daytime highs warming into the 80s in the valleys, with widespread 70s by the coast.
