Cloudy skies and cooler weather ahead

Heading into Saturday, the onshore flow will deepen the marine layer and cool temperatures. However, temperatures will remain above normal. Mid and high level clouds will blanket the skies tonight and Saturday night. Through Sunday, a ridge of high pressure should weaken as the offshore flow is transitioning to onshore flow. Sunday, a ridge of high pressure moves back into the region resulting in more of an offshore flow and lower humidity levels between 10 and 20 percent by Sunday afternoon and evening. Therefore, an elevated fire concern continues with warm daytime temperatures, low humidity and dry fuels. Next week, a series of low pressure systems will bring partly to mostly cloudy skies. Monday through Thursday, a series of low pressure systems are forecasted to move through the Central Coast, increasing the clouds coverage and decreasing temperatures with a very slight chance of light precipitation. Strong winds are expected to develop across southern Santa Barbara County Tuesday and Wednesday.
