Record highs possible Monday as high pressure builds

Good Morning Central Coast! This Monday morning we are starting off on a bit of a chilly note. Grab that extra layer on the way out the door but you will not need it for long!

Warm weather will be the story Monday. Interior valleys will reach into the upper 80s with clear skies and offshore winds.
Temperatures today will be warm, especially in the interior valleys. Some records are possible but not particularly likely. Western beaches will be a completely different story. Onshore winds will return this afternoon and limit warming significantly.

Later Monday afternoon the strong offshore winds that have helped to warm us up today will shift back onshore. This will first cool the beaches Monday afternoon, bringing in some more marine influence and low clouds Tuesday morning.
Winds will turn onshore in the early afternoon today. That will dramatically cool beach temperatures and limit afternoon warming in coastal valleys.
The interior temperatures today will be warmer and will only cool down this evening thanks to the onshore winds.

Tuesdays highs will be a few degrees cooler than Monday with added marine influence. More of the same will continue on Wednesday and into Thursday. At that point winds will bump back up and bring strong winds to the Santa Barbara county coast. This will push in warm air for the weekend when we will get above normal once again.
Have a great day and week ahead Central Coast!
