June and July coastal clouds are so common in the night and morning hours that both months have monikers to talk about them: June Gloom and No Sky July. Well, the forecast isn’t nearly that dreary.

Extensive clouds should be limited to the night and morning hours with decent clearing for the afternoons over the next few days.

Prior to all that we’ll be experiencing windy pass and canyon winds again across Santa Barbara county but at this point there is no advisory. The north winds could gust past 30mph.

Outside of the night and morning clouds the temps look pretty mild with afternoon sun for most of the area over the next 3 days.

Friday temps could come up a bit with little stronger high pressure, so temps could jump up to 5 degrees.

Weekend looks good, some increase in onshore winds could bring temps back down a little bit again.

No big twists and turns into early next week, later in the week we should warm as the ridge over the desert SW looks to expand to the west.

Second half of next week looks warmer as a western ridge of high pressure expands.
