These strong winds are going to continue into Sunday, prompting several advisories to be extended through Sunday evening.

Our high wind warning for Santa Barbara County expires Sunday at 12p.m. and the fire weather warning expires Sunday at 10 p.m.

Sundowner wind gusts for the south coast are anticipated to be 40-60 mph, with isolated gusts up to 75 mph near the Montecito Hills.

Out on the water, we have a small craft advisory and high surf advisory.

The strong winds are generating high surf of 8-11 ft.
