Winds start to increase, which means more clearing Thursday afternoon

Posted at 5:32 AM, Jun 28, 2018

Thursday will be a breezy day for most areas throughout the Central Coast. 

Areas along the North Coast could see wind gusts increase to about 25 miles per hour in the afternoon and evening, which is a pattern that will continue into Friday as well. The high winds will continue for most of the coastline and coastal valleys, but Santa Barbara County’s south coast looks to be fairly mild Thursday when it comes to winds. However, heading into the evening, it looks like sundowner winds could be a factor in Santa Barbara County. As a result of the winds increasing, fog and marine layer could clear earlier today, most likely before 11:00 a.m.

Daytime highs will be cooler along the coastline with temperatures ranging from the low to upper 60s, especially as a result of the winds. Coastal valleys will be in the low 70s and the inland valleys won’t go past the upper 80s on Thursday.
