Posted at 3:59 PM, Apr 07, 2019

We’re getting a taste of summer-time with temperatures stretching into the 80s Sunday into Monday. By Tuesday, temps cool down as much as ten degrees. Daytime highs will hit the mid to high 60’s in most locations through the rest of the week.

A wind advisory is in effect from 7 p.m. Sunday until 7 a.m. Monday for the Santa Barbara south coast and the Santa Barbara County Mountains. Gusty north to northeast winds 20 to 25 mph with gusts between 40 and 50 mph will continue through the night, the strongest of those winds being between Refugio and Gaviota.

For now, winds are staying below advisory levels in San Luis Obispo County. By Tuesday, advisory level winds are likely across the region with northwest winds 20 to 30 mph and gusts up to 45.
