A dry southwest flow and passing trough to the north will bring less humid weather through Monday. Through next week, high pressure building from the west will increase temperatures, warm weather will linger and coastal areas will experience patchy low clouds and fog. We can expect notable warming for the south coast and interior regions Sunday. There is an increased risk of rip currents along the Central Coast beaches which is expected to last through this week. Mariners could see gale force winds across the outer waters Sunday evening through Monday. Stronger and more widespread northerly winds are expected for the Santa Barbara South Coast and Santa Ynez range Sunday night into Monday, gusting up to 40 mph. By Monday and Tuesday, the marine layer should deepen and the cloud deck will become extensive and temperatures will drop a few degrees. Elevated fire weather danger will stretch across the inland regions and Santa Barbara South Coast this weekend. Sundowner winds will make for warmer and drier conditions throughout the foothills of the Santa Ynez range and South coast, such as Gaviota and Refugio. The humidity level may fall as low as 10 percent and winds could gust between 30-40 mph through Sunday evening.
