Saturday Evening Forecast May 22nd

 Late season storm system continues to spin just to our north and east. A very slight chance for sprinkles remains for areas just to the east of us. Breezy winds shouldn't increase to advisory levels, but could be locally gusty. Overnight lows will be in the cool lower 50's for most areas. Sunday will see a mix of coastal fog and sunshine. Afternoon highs will likely bump upward just a bit with temperatures expected to be in the 60's and 70's. A chance for more northerly winds could come in to play for portions of the Santa Barbara South Coast. We will monitor closely and let you know immediately if we see another Wind Advisory event by Sunday evening.
Looking ahead, as the late season storm moves farther east, high pressure will settle in over Nevada, this will create a slight offshore flow across the region. That means more northerly winds and even a slow end Santa Ana by early next week. This will warm things up and weaken the marine layer through about Tuesday. The onshore flow should then slowly rebuild by mid week and remain along the coast through much of next week. This will bring more fog for the coast and plenty of sunshine farther inland as we head through the weekend and Memorial Day!
