A pattern of night to morning cloud cover will remain for most coastal and valley areas. This along with gusty northwesterly winds and moderate sundowner winds down south. Since the strongest winds are expected for southern Santa Barbara County this will help keep skies clear. Daytime highs will fluctuate slightly through Saturday, with a warming trend into next week especially across valleys. By early next week interior valleys will likely reach the 90s to 100s, with plenty of sunshine.
A weak trough of low pressure will linger through Saturday, allowing onshore flow to deepen into the start of the weekend. The marine layer will likely remain near the coast, with foggy and cloudy conditions. Due to stronger winds inland locations are likely to see better clearing. Pressure gradients will tighten late Thursday and Friday, with advisory level winds.
A Wind Advisory is in effect across southern Santa Barbara County until Friday at 3 AM. North to northwest winds will range 20 to 30 mph, with gusts up to 45 mph. Mainly to areas west of Refugio Pass.
A ridge will move in from Monday through Wednesday. This will bring noticeably warmer temperatures across the interior valley while onshore flow remain moderate to strong. As a result this will bring a huge distinction from the coast to valley. Memorial Day will be the start to a noticeable warming trend, with less clouds. Tuesday and Wednesday are looking to be the warmest days, with 70s and 80s near coast and 90s to 100s inland.
