Sunday Evening Forecast May 23rd

Late season storm continues to spin just to our northeast. This did bring a few showers for eastern portions of California and some cool air. As this system moves out, high pressure will continue to build and that sets us up for some northerly winds. In fact, a Wind Advisory has been posted for portions of Santa Barbara County which last in to very early Monday. Winds could gust as high as 45 mph especially below mountains and foothills. Overnight lows will be mostly in the 50's and upper 40's. Fog is not expected, but could find its way onshore for some portions of the immediate coastline. With the mild northerly or offshore winds, temperatures on Monday will warm up, especially inland. We should see widespread 70's near the coast, with 80's and even a few low 90's possible farther inland.

Looking ahead, with the offshore winds, Monday will be very warm and we could even see another Wind Advisory come in to play toward the evening hours for the South Coast of Santa Barbara and interior mountains. Winds should ease through Tuesday and with that, the onshore flow will slowly start to make its comeback. That means cooler temperatures for the coastline and eventually inland areas by mid week. The routine of morning fog and afternoon sunshine will take over as our main weather story as we head in to next weekend and Memorial Day!
