Light, scattered showers are expected through the morning commute before tapering off and continuing to move south. After the rain leaves the area, mostly cloudy skies will remain before more clearing later in the evening.

A high surf warning will remain in place through Tuesday at 9:00 a.m. Tuesday. A northwestern swell will bring surf up to 12-20 feet with breakers between 18 and 25 ft. As a result, a coastal flood advisory will be in place as water could spill into dry areas of beaches, as well as walkways and parking lots along the shore.

Daytime highs for the coastal valleys and beaches will be close to the low to mid-60s. Temperatures for the interior valleys will range from the upper 50s to low 60s. Moderate 15-25 mile per hour southerly winds will continue through the morning before leveling off and shifting to northwesterly winds by the afternoon.

Mild and mostly sunny conditions will carry out through Wednesday before a slight warm-up. Thursday’s daytime highs could bring temperatures to the mid to upper 70s for areas like Santa Maria and Santa Barbara.
