A broad upper level trough will linger over the West Coast this week bringing below normal temperatures to most of the area. Some patchy stratus clouds across the Central Coast and the Santa Ynez Valley should become a bit more widespread this morning. Expect stratus to clear in most areas by late morning, increasing onshore flow leading to a few degrees of cooling in most areas today.
Maximum temperatures will likely remain below 90 degrees in all but perhaps one or two of the hotter valley locations. There may be some locally gusty winds through and below passes and canyons of Southern Santa Barbara County this evening, winds should remain well below advisory levels.
Slight warming is possible next weekend as the trough of low pressure shifts east and onshore flow weakens.
