Santa Lucia winds will continue to be breezy Monday, keeping skies mostly clear. At their peak, these winds could reach close to 30 miles per hour by Monday afternoon before tapering off in the evening hours. Daytime highs will continue to be close to the upper 50s for the inland valleys and from the low to mid-60s for the coastal valleys and beaches.

A high surf advisory will remain in place for San Luis Obispo and northern Santa Barbara Counties through 3:00 p.m. Monday. Breaking waves will range from eight to 12 feet Monday morning before diminishing by the afternoon hours.

Rain is still in the forecast for Thursday. Wednesday will serve as a transitional day with increasing cloud cover and southerly winds, but rain will likely develop early Thursday morning along the north coast before making its way south. As far as rainfall amounts go, overall this system could bring 0.25''-0.75'' of rain to the area with amounts from 0.75''-1.25'' for the mountains and foothills, but National Weather Service advises there shouldn't be concern for recent burn areas. There will continue to be more developments on this system as we get closer to Thursday.
