Mellow week coming

By Victoria Johnson

There will be patchy areas of late night and early morning low clouds and fog this week across the Central Coast. Temperatures will be cool west of the mountains Sunday. Monday and Tuesday, high pressure and offshore flow will make for warmer temperatures. Humidity levels will drop into the single digits and teens. Winds through Wednesday will be gusty but below advisory levels. Highs will return to near normal by Wednesday. Then, cooling will set in for the remainder of the week as onshore flow and coastal clouds return west of the mountains. Weather patterns will be fairly calm through the weekend.

The National Weather Service has issued a small craft advisory until 9 p.m. Saturday night. West winds between 15-20 knots, gusting up to 25 knots, can be expected. Combined seas can range between 4-6 feet. This is forecasted for the East Santa Barbara Channel from Point Conception to Point Mugu, including Santa Cruz Island. It also includes the waters from Point Sal to Santa Cruz Island and westward 60 nautical miles, including Santa Rosa and San Miguel Islands and the outer waters from Santa Cruz Island to San Clemente Island to 60 nautical miles offshore, including San Nicolas and Santa Barbara Islands. The strongest winds are expected in the region of the Northern Channel Islands and the west portion of the Santa Barbara Channel.

Dramatic warm up expected Monday

By Victoria Johnson

Saturday night, wind gusts could range between 10-20 mph in the Santa Barbara Mountains. A deep marine layer will most likely be present into Sunday. Through early Monday morning, an onshore flow will bring below normal temperature and coastal clouds. On Monday, an offshore flow and a dramatic warm up will develop. Tuesday, the onshore flow and cooler temperatures and low clouds along the coast will move into the region. Wednesday through Saturday will be cloudy at the coast.

Cooler weekend ahead

by Dave Hovde, KSBY Meteorologist

Onshore flow picks up this weekend as an upper low moves over the Central Coast. This will bring a cooling trend through Saturday with beach highs in the 50s and lower 60s Saturday, with coastal valleys topping in the upper 60s, interior valleys in the 70s.

Saturday afternoon could see breezier conditions than the light air flow of the last few days.

Sunday through Monday temps will probably come up a few degrees but onshore flow continues so only the valleys will see temps really exceed seasonal norms.

Tuesday and Wednesday another trough will approach from the northwest and onshore flow will again get a boost, so temps should stay near norms near the coast. No good signs of rain in the extended forecast.

Cooling trend into weekend

by Dave Hovde, KSBY Meteorologist

Onshore flow will continue to increase into the weekend as an upper low moves over top of the Central Coast Friday. This will bring a cooling trend through Saturday along with a deepening marine layer.

The marine influence will spread further inland thru Saturday cooling even the valleys which have been well above normal for high temps.

Saturday afternoon could see breezier conditions than the light air flow of the last few days.

Sunday through Monday temps will probably come up a few degrees but onshore flow continues so only the valleys will see temps really exceed seasonal norms.

Tuesday and Wednesday another trough will approach from the northwest and onshore flow will again get a boost, so temps should stay near norms near the coast. No good signs of rain in the extended forecast.
