A trough making way over the west coast will bring mostly cloudy skies to the area Monday.
Offshore flow will bring slightly warmer daytimes and breezy conditions. Temperatures for the coastal valleys and beaches will stay around the mid to upper 60s and the interior valleys will remain on the cooler side from the upper 50s to low 60s.
Through the morning commute, there will be increasing cloud cover, however, the afternoon could bring fairly gusty conditions for most of the Central Coast. Northwesterly winds will reach at least 15 miles per hour with the potential to get close to 25 mph. Santa Barbara County’s south coast could have wind gusts up to 40 mph through Tuesday before conditions level out Wednesday.
It will be a dry week as ridge approaches the area Wednesday, but there’s another chance for rain by the end of the upcoming weekend.
