It was quite the windy day for the Central Coast, with many areas seeing gusts over 30 mph throughout the afternoon.
These gusty north to northeast winds are expected to continue Sunday night into Monday with warming temperatures.
This combo has set the stage for a night of sundowner winds in southern Santa Barbara County, with winds anticipated to be upwards of 60 mph in the Montecito Hills.
There is also a Red Flag Warning and High Wind Warning in effect due to concern over rapid rate of fire spread and drop in humidities.
Many areas are up to 75 percent drier than Saturday.
Temperatures will warm several more degrees Monday, being fueled by Santa Ana winds.
Typically there is a spread in temperatures from the coasts and valleys, but some areas may actually see warmer temperatures along the coast than in the valleys.
Our winds out on the water are staying at Gale Force level through late Monday night and diminish to Small Craft Advisory level through Friday.
This is a great time to make sure your go-bag is ready and you have an evacuation plan.
Stay safe out there!
