Winds start to calm down Monday

Posted at 6:20 AM, Jun 11, 2018

A windy weekend has carried over into the start of another week. Santa Barbara County has both a wind advisory and red flag warning in effect until 10:00 a.m. For the Red Flag Warning, gusty 40-50 mile per hour winds combined with dry conditions create for critical fire weather, although those conditions will calm down Monday morning. Following the expiration of the advisories, expect a breezy afternoon for the Central Coast with winds between 15 to 25 mph. As a result of breezy conditions throughout San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara Counties, skies will be mostly clear early Monday morning.

With an upper high building over California, daytime highs are continuing to climb. Interior valleys will range from the upper 80s to the low 90s on Monday. The coastal valleys will be in the upper 70s to upper 80s and the beaches will be in the upper 60s to low 70s. By Tuesday, triple digits could be a possibility for the interior valleys making it the hottest day of the week.
