We are starting off the work week with dry and mostly sunny conditions and temperatures near normal. Tonight we will see cool temperatures dipping into the 40s.
Patchy fog will return overnight especially along the Central Coast. Tuesday we will see mostly cloudy to partly cloudy skies. Highs on Tuesday will be very similar to today in the mid to upper 60s. Isolated showers are still a possibility for the Central Coast but more than likely we will stay dry.
The trough should exit the region by Wednesday night and high pressure aloft should build in through Thursday brining a slow warming trend with slightly above normal temperatures to the area by Thursday. Offshore flow will develop and temperatures should warm to above normal on Thursday. Advisory level northeast winds do not look likely for Thursday, but breezy to locally windy conditions could develop through and below passes and canyons.
Warmer than normal conditions should remain into Friday, then a weak trough of low pressure will sag south for the weekend. For now it looks like we will stay dry but there is a chance of rain primarily for San Luis Obispo County. Advisory level winds are expected across Southern Santa Barbara County Saturday and Sunday.
