A ridge of high pressure is building over the Central Coast on Sunday into Monday producing winds from 20 to 30 mph at times. Gusts could reach up to 50 mph near Estero Bay.

A frost advisory remains in effect in Santa Barbara County, including the cities of Santa Maria, Lompoc, Vandenberg, Santa Paula, Fillmore, Ojai, and Piru.

Temperatures are expected to drop between 32 and 35 degrees in wind protected areas. The advisory will expire 9 a.m. Monday.

Monday morning will likely be the coldest of the week as overnight lows drop into the high 20s inland.

Mid-week, a warming trend will bring temperatures into the low 80s throughout San Luis Obispo County on Tuesday into Wednesday.

Cloudy skies and rain showers have a chance of returning late week as an area of low pressure is expected to tap into some subtropical moisture.

Temperatures will only cool slightly with this particular storm with mild overnight lows and higher snow levels.

Another storm is expected to arrive next Sunday and Monday, which could bring stronger winds and moderate to heavy rain.
