A dense fog advisory is in effect through the 9 o'clock hour for the coastal valleys and beaches for the Central Coast and northern Santa Barbara County. Visibility could be one-quarter mile or less, so drivers might need to increase their following distance throughout the morning commute.

An inversion could keep the coastal regions from clearing Tuesday afternoon, which will result in most beaches staying in the 60s. As for the coastal and inland valleys, expect mostly clear skies by the afternoon and daytime highs in the 70s and 80s. Similar to Monday, winds will stay mild and at or around 10 miles per hour for most of the day.

Looking ahead to Wednesday, a trough will move in over the state, resulting in six to 8 degrees of cooling and cloudy skies through Thursday. This will bring daytime highs for the inland and coastal valleys down to the 70s. After a cooler couple of days, the region will warm-up for the weekend. Expect peak temperatures to be back in the 70s and 80s and mostly clear skies.
