A very quiet start to August weather-wise as our outlook, at least for the near future, see little change. Marine layer fog will ebb and flow through much of the upcoming week with just some minor day to day fluctuations expected.
For Monday, look for any morning fog to burn off by the afternoon...perhaps a little patchy fog will linger along the coastline for some beach communities. Afternoon highs will be in the upper 60's and 70's, near the coast, with 80's and a few 90's expected farther inland. In addition, breezy and at times gusty Sundowner winds could be felt along the Santa Barbara South Coast. There are no official watches or advisories, but it could a little gusty right around Gaviota and areas to the south.
Looking ahead, again we are seeing a very normal and quiet set up to the first full week of August. Monsoonal moisture should remain well out of our region. Inland areas will remain warm and even hot, but still within normal range for late Summer! Coastal areas will again be under a very mild marine layer onshore flow with late night and early morning fog giving way to mostly sunny skies by the afternoon.
