Wednesday morning forecast August 26

A warm and sunny day is on tap for Wednesday. With a modest warming trend into Thursday. Breezy northerly winds across southern Santa Barbara County will be possible each day until Friday morning. Before a cool down moves in for Friday and through the weekend.

Due to a weak ridge of high pressure centered to the east, this will allow for a few degrees of warming Wednesday and Thursday. With daytime highs expected to remain above average until Sunday. The morning fog will keep the Central Coast in the 60s to 70s. While the South Coast, clears away and reaches the 70s to 80s. Interior valleys and mountains 90s to 100s.

A light to moderate sun-downer wind event is possible on Thursday with conditions likely to impact southern Santa Barbara County. Winds will be breezy with gusts as strong as 45 mph, near Gaviota and Refugio. At this time no advisories have been issued.

A nice cool down arrives on Friday. As the ridge shifts east, our onshore flow will increase. This will bring more night to morning clouds along with a stronger marine layer leading to slower clearing.
