Good Morning Central Coast! We will seeing some more chilly temps over the next few mornings with significant frost chances as well.

Due to the cold temperatures across the Central Coast this morning the National Weather Service has issued a Frost advisory for our western beaches and coastal valleys of Santa Barbara County through 9AM. These temperatures could damage sensitive plants across the region. The interior valleys are only in the 20s this morning. Grab that extra layer on the way out the door this morning.
There is a slight risk of some cloud cover and fog this morning. Mainly chances stay minimal in the Lompoc and Santa Ynez Valley.

Temperatures will stay mild, 60s are expected in the coastal valleys, some interiors and beaches will stay in the upper 50s. These temps are near normal for this time of year but if you are looking for warmer weather just wait a few days, there is a big warm up on the way!

Tuesday into Wednesday there is a greater chance of cloud cover and dense fog in the morning hours. That will pair with a few added gusts through Wednesday before a big warm up starts. As we near the holiday weekend highs will climb above normal with abundant sunshine. Most locations will see 70s by Christmas!

Have a great day Central Coast!
