High pressure continues to bring above normal temperatures through Monday. There will be the presence of fog along the Central Coast, primarily in Santa Maria. Tomorrow, we can expect cooler weather due to a weak and dry trof off the Pacific. Santa Barbara will see temps in the upper 80's Monday due to the offshore flow developing by the late afternoon. However, along the coast, a shallow marine layer will keep the beach and coastal communities cooler with highs in the 60 and 70 degree range. The foothills will remain warm overnight. The offshore flow should keep the Central Coast fairly clear.
A low pressure system will arrive Tuesday, bringing a cooling trend and deepening marine layer into Saturday. Overnight low clouds and fog will return late Tuesday night into early Wednesday morning. A deepening of the marine layer Thursday through Sunday will likely extend clouds and fog into the valleys. There will be a dip in temperatures by Thursday and Friday. These temperatures may even be a few degrees below normal.
