Monday evening forecast – Sep. 7th

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - Widespread Excessive Heat Warnings are finally set to expire tonight as temperatures begin to cool down a bit… though temperatures everywhere are staying above normal, and downright hot inland. Widespread smoke and haze from wildfires burning across the state is impacting air quality and will continue to do so through at least Tuesday morning. Tonight a Red Flag Warning is in effect through 10 pm for the Santa Barbara County mountains and South Coast, with dry conditions and gusty winds possible.

On Tuesday we'll see temperatures cool once again--inland daytime highs could drop double digits from Monday's levels. Highs will reach the upper-70s to low-80s for coastal areas, with the 90s expected inland. We'll likely see hazy and smoky conditions for at least some of Tuesday.

Tuesday afternoon and evening we will begin to see Santa Ana winds develop in Ventura County and areas south… bringing dry, gusty winds and critical fire conditions through Wednesday. Those dry, warm winds will warm Ventura County temperatures on Wednesday. Other areas will see a slight warm-up before a cooler end to the week.
