High pressure is building again. Today that resulted in some decent wind flow over the Central Coast, it cleared out marine clouds nicely. That wind will also produce Sundowner winds in Santa Barbara county tonight with N-NW winds 15-30mph with gusts to 45mph. A wind advisory is in place for SB county in the high country and the passes and canyons above the Southcoast.

Overnight and morning low clouds and patchy fog will continue along much of the coast into next week with temperatures similar to today: 60s for most beaches with 70s and low 80s in the coastal valleys.

Inland heat will top 100 in the interior of SLO county for the weekend but ease up a little next week when the ridge weakens again. This could introduce some monsoon moisture into the area. Parts of So Cal could even see some isolated storms but not likely here.

Only slight cooling expected through the rest of the week with highs remaining at or a few degrees above normal.
