Low clouds and fog lingered along the coastline on Monday before burning off and bringing the sunshine. Those low clouds are expected to make their return Monday night and bring temperatures down to the 50s or 60s.

With the dry conditions and warmer temperatures, there is an increase in fire danger, particularly in the southwest regions of California in the mountains, deserts, and interior valleys. 

Monday afternoon, sundowner winds will bring warm and dry conditions to the southern portion of the coast in Santa Barbara, as well as the Santa Ynez mountains, which will continue into the evening. Both a wind advisory and red flag warning is in place for those areas until 5 p.m. Tuesday. That means winds could have gusts up to 40 miles per hour.

The Red Flag Warning will impact areas of Goleta with 35-50 mph gusts of wind and bring relative humidity 10-15 percent. This advisory goes hand-in-hand with fire danger as these are favorable conditions for fire conditions. 

At the beaches and in the coastal valleys, Monday's temps reached the mid-70s, while the inland valleys were in the mid-to-high 90s. There's a heat advisory in place until 10 p.m. Tuesday for areas in Northern San Luis Obispo County. 

Looking ahead to Tuesday, temperatures along the coast will range from the mid-60s to mid-70s. As for the inland temperatures, they're expected to range from low 90s to mid-100s.
