Things will be locally gusty tonight on the south coast through the Gaviota area, below advisory levels but still something to take note of.

Monday, leading up to the rain skies will be partly cloudy with mid to high level clouds breaking apart for a little sunshine to get through.

Temperatures Monday will look similar to Sunday, with highs in the mid 60's, and will stay there for the rain system Tuesday.

Wednesday a ridge will build replacing the clouds and drizzle with warming temperatures and clear skies.

Temperatures will reach the upper 80's in several areas by the end of next week.
