It was quite the blustery day for the Central Coast as gusty winds made temperatures outside feel even chillier than they were.

A showery weather pattern with gusty winds will continue as a cold storm system moves over the region through Sunday night.

The cold air mass will remain through Tuesday and overnight temperatures will approach freezing away from the coast.

A Hard Freeze Warning has now been issued for interior parts of Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo Counties through Monday morning, with it being downgraded to a Freeze Watch Monday night into Tuesday.


Snow levels will be dropping to 3000 feet, potentially low enough for foothills of SLO County to see snow.

This storm has been a strong wind producer, with many areas seeing gusts over 20 mph.


A wind advisory has been continued in southern Santa Barbara County through 3 am.

Gale force conditions in outer waters through tonight, diminish to small craft advisory level in the morning.

High surf risk and risk of rip currents persists through at least Monday, with surf heights 10-13 feet in some parts of the Central Coast.

Stay warm out there!
