After having to think about rain chances for the last week now the focus of the upcoming forecast will be about temperatures and winds.
Early clouds and fog inland kick off Thursday but closer to the coast only partly cloudy skies are in my forecast.
As high pressure builds in behind Wednesday's very weak frontal passage winds will be the most notable element.
Thursday afternoon winds will be 15-25mph out of the NW, Friday's flow looks very similar.
The increasing northerly flow will have to squeeze through the Santa Ynez mtns during the nights and advisory level winds are possible there.
As skies clear up over the next few days the overnight lows will drop as we get into the weekend. 40s near the coast and near freezing in the interior valleys.
Daytime highs will be in the 60s to about 70 near the coast with low to mid 60s inland.
No signs of rain in extended computer modeling of the atmosphere though at least 10 days. But these outlooks this time of year have a way of changing quickly, stay tuned.
