The warm and dry weather continues as we head into this new week.

Temperatures are starting to taper off in some coastal areas across the Central Coast, but for the inland areas - the heat has been relentless and will continue until mid-week when a cooling trend begins.

We can expect low clouds and fog in our coastal areas that will linger into the afternoons before clearing away and then returning in the evenings.

High wind gusts are still a factor, with the likelihood for sundowner winds in southern Santa Barbara County.

These winds can be dangerous as gusts can be in the 25-35 mph hour range and have been known to aid the spread of wildfires in the area.

The strong winds are contributing to a small craft advisory stretching across the central coast, that does not expire until Tuesday morning.
