High pressure will be building back in rapidly tonight and winds will start to roar later this evening, wind advisories are in place for gusts that could be as strong as 50mph in spots in the SLO interior and the SB county mountains. Those areas are also under red flag warnings (high fire danger) due to the combination of wind and very low relative humidies. Coastal winds will be locally gusty but no advisories are in place. However the coastal story will be the building waves. A high surf advisory is in place from later today thru Sunday morning for 8-16ft waves with some max sets to 20ft, dangerous rip is a concern.
Winds will be locally gusty into Saturday. Temps will be in the mid 70s and low 80s for the coastal valleys with beach and inland spots a bit cooler.
Long term models are little down on the idea of pattern change back to wet, a few systems in early Feb. now look to nudge the area rather than directly hit which will lower any potential rain.
