Santa Barbara, Calif. - Temperatures began to cool today as a small area of low pressure nosed its way over California, pushing the ridge westward, and allowing for more onshore flow. That onshore flow will bring more low clouds and areas of fog to the Central Coast and South Coast, and lows won't be quite as chilly. Overnight lows will range from the upper 30s to upper 40s.
The area of low pressure will stay over California both Thursday and Friday, keeping our mornings a little foggy but our afternoons will be bright and mild. We'll have more sunshine on Saturday before a more vigorous inside slider trough pushes over the region late Sunday and Monday, delivering more wind. We'll have weaker wind and more warmth afterward.
Overnight lows will be returning to more seasonable levels for most areas tonight through the middle of next week. Valleys: mainly 30s. Coasts: mainly 40s. Daytime highs will be at least seasonable if not slightly warmer through next Wednesday with Saturday and next Wednesday being the warmest days. Highs for all areas will stay mainly in the 60s with some lower 70s.
