It was a windy and sunny Saturday for the Central Coast, with some areas seeing gusts over 35 mph Saturday afternoon.


Gusty west to northwest winds are expected across the Central Coast Saturday night into Sunday, with cool evening temperatures.

Sunday night and Monday winds shift to north, northeast and begin to increase as conditions warm and dry.

Wind gusts will remain at advisory level through Sunday, with strongest winds in the afternoon and evening hours.

We also are beginning a warming trend through Tuesday in which many areas will be 10-20 degrees warmer than they are now.

This combination has created great concern for fire weather dangers.
