Santa Barbara, Calif. - Valentine's Day began in a foggy way for many parts of the California Central Coast and South Coast due to the marine layer and its clouds, but we still had beautiful afternoon sunshine. There will be more fog and low cloud cover pushing onshore tonight, but it won't be as widespread. Overnight lows will range from the mid 30s to the mid 40s Saturday morning.
A small ridge of high pressure will briefly build over California on Saturday, before another "inside slider" trough of low pressure brings more clouds and stronger wind late Sunday and Monday. Another ridge will push back over California for much of next week, bringing more sunshine and warmer than average highs. A rain-bearing storm may be about 10 days away.
Overnight lows will remain in the seasonable range from our area for the third week of February. Valleys: mainly 30s. Coasts: mainly 40s. Daytime highs will be warmer than average for everyone through the end of next week, with no good chance for any rain for at least 9 to 10 days. Highs through next Friday will range from the lower 60s to the lower 70s for everyone.
