Monday evening forecast – March 2nd

After getting just a little bit of rain on Sunday we are now enjoying mostly sunny skies Monday.  There is gusty offshore Santa Ana winds tonight through Tuesday and a warming trend through mid-week with above normal afternoon high temperatures. There is a chance of rain developing this weekend.

Gusty wind tonight in Santa Barbara County and Ventura County.  A Wind Advisory is in effect until 3AM Tuesday morning for the Santa Barbara South Coast and Mountains.  The Ventura County mountains and valleys are under a wind advisory until noon tomorrow.

Tuesday we will get to keep the sunshine and warm temperatures.  Highs should be a little warmer than today pushing into the low to mid 70s for most locations.  

The ridge remains in place Wednesday, however strong onshore trends will usher in an earlier sea breeze and we may even see some marine layer stratus developing along some of the coastal zones in the morning. The end result being a cooler day for coast/valleys but likely similar or a few degrees warmer for the interior.

Not much change Thursday except possibly slightly higher coverage of morning stratus. 

The ridge will start to break down Friday as a trough moves into the eastern Pacific. Increasing marine layer and cooler temps will be the main impacts Friday.

There is a chance of rain developing this weekend.  There is also a chance of a March miracle with a good amount rain possible in the middle of March.
