Locally breezy conditions will continue across the Santa Barbara County south coast and mountains through Sunday.

Because of these windy conditions, a Small Craft Advisory has been issued for our inner and outer waters.

A significant warming trend will start Sunday and continue through Thursday.

The hottest temperatures are expected mid-week.

Temperatures will be 4-8 degrees above normal for most areas Sunday.

Temperatures are anticipated to be 8-15 degrees above normal Monday, except only 2-6 degrees for coastal areas.

Temperatures near the coast could vary depending on the evolution of the marine layer.

For now, skies look like they will be staying pretty clear.

Temperatures are anticipated to be 10-20 degrees above normal by Tuesday, with peak heat Wednesday.

Potentials for heat advisories could arise Sunday as things start to warm up.

In the San Joaquin Valley, an Excessive Heat Watch advisory has been issued as dangerously high temperatures are anticipated.
