The Southcoast has been the warmest place so far with upper 80s last night and some lower 90s today, but as high pressure peaks the coastal temps will also continue to rise.

High Winds warnings continue into early Friday for the Santa Barbara county Southcoast, mountains, passes and canyons. Click HERE for details about that warning.

Friday and Saturday temperatures for most peak with 80s and some 90s. A somewhat rare Heat Advisory has been issued for Friday and Saturday. To read the details of the advisory click HERE.

Offshore night and morning winds generated by surface high pressure and an upper level ridge are fueling the warm weather.

Offshore winds expected to decrease after Friday morning but still remain breezy into Saturday morning before onshore flow returns Saturday afternoon.

Temps look to cool a bit Sunday but some rebuilding of the ridge Tuesday will likely push temps back up.
