SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - We're ending a mild but mostly comfortable day with some gusty northerly winds. Most will be felt in usually windy areas: below the passes and canyons of the Santa Ynez Range, and especially near Gaviota. Winds could gust to 45 mph. Lows tonight will reach the mid to upper-40s for most areas.
Tomorrow we can expect a pleasant, mostly sunny day. Those occasionally gusty north to northwest winds will continue, especially along the Santa Barbara South Coast and in western areas of Santa Barbara County. Highs will reach the low-to-mid 70s throughout Santa Barbara County, and the upper-60s in San Luis Obispo County.
High pressure will continue to dominate this week and we'll see unseasonably warm temperatures. Highs could reach the low to mid-80s by the middle of this week. Temperatures look like they will peak on Thursday before cloud cover increases and afternoon highs cool considerably late this week and into this weekend. Unfortunately, we're not seeing any good chances for rain through the end of February.
