**A Red Flag Warning and a Wind Advisory are in effect for Ventura County until 3 pm Monday**
California's Central Coast and South Coast felt a lot more like summer than autumn today with plentiful sunshine and temperatures well above average. Offshore flow was responsible for today's unseasonably hot weather, and we haven't come to the end to that weather pattern yet. Tonight will be clear and breezy with mild lows in the 50s and lower 60s Sunday morning.
Sunday will be very similar to Saturday as far as our weather is concerned, but most places will be hotter than they were today. A strong ridge of high pressure will stay in control of our weather both Sunday and Monday, and it will provide the offshore flow necessary for hot early autumn weather as well as Santa Ana wind for Ventura County. Highs both Sunday and Monday will be mainly in the 90s and lower 100s...both along the coast and inland.
A trough of low pressure will begin moving toward California from the Pacific Northwest on Tuesday, and a cooling trend will begin. The latter half of next week will be marked by a notable downturn in temperatures as well as an increased influence of the marine layer, with morning clouds followed by afternoon sunshine. Highs late next week will range from the 60s along the coast the the 80s in our warmer inland valleys.
