A trough that has been over the Pacific Northwest is now shifting east and a ridge is now moving in. As a result, daytime highs will be about four to eight degrees above average.

For your Friday forecast, the inland valleys will be around the upper 80s and the coastal valleys will stay close to the mid-80s. Along the coast, temperatures will range from the upper 60s to the low 70s.

Patchy fog is expected for areas around western Santa Barbara County, otherwise, the Central Coast and South Coast regions will be clear by late morning. Breezy northeasterly winds persist throughout most of the morning, which will keep the marine layer out to sea. By the afternoon, the winds will shift out of the northwest by the afternoon and gusts could range from 25-35 miles per hour through Friday night.
