Beautiful weather for our Saturday and things are looking to get even better as we head in to Sunday. Building high pressure over the region is responsible for the mostly clear skies and mild to warm temperatures. We are monitoring a mild to moderate wind event as a northerly flow holds firm over most of California. the National Weather Service has issued a Wind Advisory for portions of Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties through at least early Sunday. Winds from the north could exceed 45 mph below the most favored passes and canyons.
With the building high pressure, Sunday looks to be very warm again with just a slight chance for some patchy am clouds/fog. Temperatures are expected to be in the 60's and 70's near the coast with much warmer readings farther inland. Again, winds should decrease slightly through the day, but could still be gusty from the north.
Look for the winds to turn slightly more northeast on Monday and this offshore direction will help to boost temperatures even more. Many inland areas could easily warm in to the 90's while our coastal areas look to be solidly in the 70's...maybe even right around 80-degrees.
A quick return of cooler weather is expected as the area of high pressure weakens and a stronger onshore flow develops over the region. This will bring in more fog and breezy conditions as we head in the middle and second half of next week. Some of our coastal areas may struggle to see much in the way of sunshine as the marine layer thickens up.
