While the wind advisory for San Luis Obispo County expired Sunday night, the wind advisory for Santa Barbara County has been extended to Tuesday morning as the strong wind gusts are anticipated to continue.

This continues the concerns for fire weather as the wind gusts could easily spread a fire quickly.

Sundowner winds are anticipated on the Santa Barbara County South Coast where wind gusts of over 50 mph have already been recorded in the Gaviota area.

Possibly providing some reprieve for first responders is the downward shift in temperatures.

Temperatures are continuing to cool, making for some chilly mornings and evenings for parts of the Central Coast through Tuesday.

Along with the cooler temperatures, we're anticipating some morning clouds and fog during the first part of the week.

These coolers temperatures won't last for long however, as a big warm-up is anticipated by the end of the week - potentially bringing inland areas back to 100 degrees again.

Have a great week!
