The sun finally came out somewhat Sunday!

Patchy low clouds were along the beaches of the Central Coast into afternoon hours.

Smoke was much thinner than the last several days but we still had poor air quality in most places.

Low clouds and coastal fog will likely affect the coastal plain and Santa Ynez Valley Sunday and Monday morning, with patchy dense fog expected.

This fog may be enough to warrant another Dense Fog Advisory.

Temperatures are expected to be above normal away from the coast, but will be dependent upon day to day changes in the thickness of any smoke layers in the atmosphere.

Some smoke layers are anticipated Monday and Tuesday and by Wednesday, current models show the smoke should be clearing away.

There are potentials for Sundowner winds in southern Santa Barbara County Monday through Wednesday.

Additionally, a Small Craft Advisory has been issued through Tuesday morning.

Temperatures the next few days are expected to be above normal but they may change due to the smoke level.

Stay safe out there!
