It was quite a nice day for the Central Coast Saturday, with most areas seeing sunshine following Friday's showers.

Behind the weather system that brought the showers, a cooler air mass was in place Saturday.

Gusty west to northwest winds were widespread, with the strongest winds focused on the Santa Barbara County south coast and Santa Ynez mountains.

A Wind Advisory is now in effect in that location through Saturday night due to the potential for wind gusts of 35-45 mph and isolated gusts as high as 50 mph near the Montecito Hills.

A chance of gale-force wind gusts are possible at times Sunday and Monday night.

A Gale Watch has been issued for Sunday night for parts of outer waters.

A High Surf Advisory expires at 9 p.m. Saturday night, but dangerous rip currents may continue.

Sunday night offshore pressure gradients tighten once again and could bring winds to advisory level again.

A gradual warming trend is expected Monday into Tuesday as weak offshore winds develop.

Have a great weekend!
