Warmer weather ahead for rest of the week

After some low clouds and fog Wednesday morning, skies will be sunny through the next 7 days. There will be warming most days and high temperatures will rise to well above normal on Thursday, bringing temps into the 70s. Breezy Santa Ana conditions are expected Thursday and Saturday. A cooling trend is expected early next week.

One more relatively cool day Wednesday with light onshore flow and some morning clouds and fog. Then high pressure will return Thursday along with another round of Santa Ana winds that will drive temps significantly higher Thursday through the weekend. Most cities will see highs in the 70s during this time.  There are actually two separate offshore wind events during that time. The first one on Thursday will be the weaker of the two but likely just enough for low end wind advisories across Ventura County. Gradients remain decent Friday but much less upper support should result in winds remaining below advisory levels. Temperatures expected to climb well into the 70s Thursday and Friday for coast/valleys. Might be some very minor cooling along the coast Friday due to an earlier sea breeze.

An inside slider will drop south along the eastern end of the West Coast ridge Friday night into Saturday. This will provide a significant energy boost to the offshore flow Saturday morning and bring advisory and possibly low end warning level winds to Ventura County. Will likely see some gusty winds in the Santa Lucias in San Luis Obispo County as well. Downsloping winds should result in warming temperatures across coast/valleys Saturday and could see some highs approaching 80. Offshore flow weakens Sunday and by Monday light onshore returns so a cooling trend with much lighter winds will begin early next week. The rest of next week looks pretty quiet with light winds, near normal temps, no precipitation.
