Parts of the coast and valleys will start the day under overcast skies, with sunshine expected for the afternoon hours. Temperatures will continue to cool as daytime highs will top out close to seasonal averages. Gusty northwest winds will impact the Central Coast during the day, and the South Coast during the evening hours, and Wind Advisories have been posted for many within our viewing area. Gusts as high as 40 to 50 mph will be possible in the most wind prone locations.
This windy pattern will continue through Thursday. The winds in southern Santa Barbara County will keep South Coast numbers warmer than other coastal areas...with mostly 70s for daytime highs. Then as the Santa Barbara area loses the winds and cools on Friday...everyone else will warm as the trough of low pressure lifts northward temporarily. However this weekend the trough will dive back southward and bring us cooler and cloudier conditions from Saturday through Memorial Day.
