It was a nice, sunny day for most of the Central Coast Saturday.

Most areas saw normal temperatures and that is going to continue Sunday, before we see a small shift in our temperatures.

We've had a strong upper level trough of low pressure, cooling down the area.

A high pressure system builds early next week bringing warmer weather back into our area.

The big story Saturday is the wind; we have both a small craft advisory and a wind advisory for Santa Barbara County that doesn't expire until Sunday morning.

Along with the wind advisory, we're anticipating sundowner winds.

Sundowner winds can create gusts up to 45 miles per hour and are often hand in hand with fire weather danger.

Because of these strong winds and warmer temperatures, Santa Barbara County firefighters are pre-positioning crews on the South Coast to be prepared in case a fire breakse out.

We're also anticipating dense fog with visibility one quarter mile or less in the morning and evening hours stretching across the coast.

Enjoy the cooler weather while it lasts.
