A wind advisory will remain in place for Santa Barbara County’s south coast and interior valleys and mountains through noon Wednesday. Fifteen to 25 mile per hour winds are in the forecast through the morning with potential for gusts to still reach 45 mph, although it looks like it will be slightly quieter than that.

The rest of the Central Coast will have windy conditions Wednesday with winds around 20-30 mph. The winds will give way to clear skies along the coast but there could be some lingering clouds through the afternoon.

Not much is changing temperature-wise with daytime highs around the mid to upper 60s for the coastal valleys and beaches and the interior valleys staying close to the upper 50s to low 60s.

A weak cold front that will pass over the area Friday was supposed to bring some light rain to northern portions of San Luis Obispo County, but it looks like it’s backing off quite a bit. Still, there is more opportunity for rain at the start of next week. A trough will dig into the area Sunday and bring cloudy conditions. By Monday morning, locals will likely wake up to some rainfall. It looks to be a light system with rainfall totals closer to 0.5’’ or less.
