Dangerous fire weather conditions continue today through the evening. The red flag warning for the San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara County mountains will expire at 6 this evening. Temperatures are expected to be above normal but not record breaking. The daytime highs should range into the upper 80's to low 90's. Winds out of the east should range between 10-20 mph; with gusts up to 25 mph. Winds should decrease to 6-12 mph in the afternoon. Winds should shift to onshore today. Widespread humidity will be less than 20 percent with a poor overnight recovery. A combination of strong winds, low humidity and warm temperatures can create extreme fire behavior. Cooling trends will begin Monday as high pressure moves east and onshore flow returns. Low clouds and fog should return to the area by Monday night and spread into the valleys. Temperatures are expected to drop significantly on Tuesday, nearly 10 degrees in some regions. A low pressure system should move in on Tuesday night and Wednesday. Skies will be partly cloudy with a slight chance of precipitation by Wednesday. Temperatures are expected to return to normal by next weekend. By Thursday, the low pressure system should make its way out of the area and dry conditions should return. Dry weather and warming is expected for next weekend.
