High pressure continues to stay over California, which means daytime highs are still on the warmer side for the Central Coast.

On Monday, expect temperatures for the inland valleys to range from the mid-80s to mid-90s with limited cloud coverage. The coastal valleys and beaches will have patchy morning fog before conditions clear up in the late morning. For the coastal valleys, daytime highs will be around the mid-70s to low 80s, while the beaches will stay within the upper-60s to low 70s.

Winds look to be moderate and within a 15-20 mile per hour range. Wind gusts will likely stay below 25 mph in the afternoon and evening hours for much of the Central Coast. However, gusty northwest winds are in the forecast for Santa Barbara County’s south coast. Gaviota could have gusts surpass 30 mph by the afternoon, which could continue into the evening.

Low pressure will start building over the Pacific Northwest, which will bring cooler daytime highs on Tuesday.
