Posted at 4:01 PM, Oct 12, 2018

Warmer weather will develop across the Central Coast on Monday through the week as high pressure over the West Coast dominates.

Temperatures are expected to be warm but mild Saturday and Sunday before a notable warm up to start the week.

Dry, warm weather is expected for the foreseeable future, which will escalate fire danger in the event of dry and strong wind events.

Today’s fire danger rating is very high along the beaches and coastal valleys.

All inland valleys are at high fire danger.

The southern part of the state, including southern Santa Barbara County, still have a chance of showers Saturday.

High surf advisory has been downgraded to a beach hazard for the beaches of LA and Ventura Counties through Sunday.

The statement has been canceled for south to southwest facing beaches across the Central Coast. The swell from Tropical Cyclone Sergio has not been as high as expected.
