A steady to strong onshore flow is expected to continue across the region. This means more fog is expected with hazy sunshine and cool to mild temperatures. In addition, breezy and even at times gusty northwest winds will also be a part of our forecast. Look for breezy northwest winds to give way to patchy fog through the night and in to early Saturday. Highs will range from the mid to upper 60's along the coast. Inland areas will be a little warmer with more sunshine expected...highs expected to be in the 70's to right around 80 for the warmest spots. Sunday looks to be similar with the possibility for some increase in the northerly flow. This could produce some gusty Sundowner north winds below the passes and canyons of Southern Santa Barbara. We'll need to keep an eye on the winds to see just how strong they may as we get closer to Sunday.
As for the holiday on Monday, we will be looking for an increase in cloud cover and more fog. This will likely cool things down slightly and we could see a few sprinkles late Monday. The chance for showers increases as we head in to Tuesday morning. While the chance for showers will be region wide, the best chance for measurable precipitation will be for our northern areas and especially near north facing foothills and mountains.
Look for clearing skies and a slight warm up as we head toward the middle and second half of the work week.
