After last week brought triple-digit temperatures to the inland valleys, this week will mark the relief from the heat. Patchy morning fog will cover most of the area Monday morning, even for the interior valleys. Daytime highs for the inland valleys will range from the mid-80s to the low 90s with about 10-15 mile per hour winds and gusts up to 25 mph.
The coastal valleys will also have some patchy fog that will start to burn off by 11:00 a.m. and bring mostly clear skies in the afternoon. Daytime highs will range from the low 70s up to the low 80s. Winds will be fairly mild throughout the afternoon and within a 10-15 mile per hour range with 15-20 mph gusts.
Northwesterly flow is keeping temperatures cooler today for areas like Lompoc. However, moving further inland, southeast winds across the Santa Ynez Mountains will still be on the warmer side.
At the coastline is where temperatures will be a little cooler with daytime highs from the low 60s to low 70s. Patchy morning fog will hang around until about 11:00 a.m. Monday ahead of some afternoon clearing. Onshore flow will be a bit weaker today which could result in stubborn clearing for the beaches and leave behind lingering clouds throughout the afternoon.
