Good Morning Central Coast! To kick off this week there is a significant marine layer bringing low visibility across the southcoast. This will spread north through the early morning hours and eventually clear out by mid day.

Thanks to the marine layer dropping visibility this morning there is a dense fog advisory in place for the lower elevations of Santa Barbara County. This includes the south coast, Santa Ynez valley as well as all of Western SB county. Take it slow on roads with limited visibility for the morning commute.

We really lucked out with the timing of this warm up we've seen the past couple of days. Temps reached nearly 80 degrees in most of the region, some 80s in the interiors.

The warmer temperatures will persist for at least one more day before shifting downwards for the rest of the week. Today highs will reach the upper 70s once again today.

Winds today will surge onshore. 15-20mph gusts are possible. This is very garden variety but it is still expected to kick off a sundowner event along the Gaviota coastline tonight. I wouldn't be surprised if we made it to advisory criteria.

Tuesday the pattern will change slightly as a cold front will push into the region. This storm is currently bringing heavy rain to the PacNW but will be dry by the time it reaches us. What it will do is add some additional marine influence (cue more fog Tuesday morning) and cooler temps.

We could see some gusty winds near the Santa Ynez mountain range Tuesday evening that may hit advisory levels.

Temps next weekend will rebound quickly. Highs in the upper 70s expected by late week again.

Have a great Monday Central Coast!
