We finally got a break from extreme heat in much of the Central Coast Sunday, as temperatures continue to slide downward.


Low cloud and patchy dense fog returned to beaches and the Santa Barbara County south coast, continuing to cool things down.

Temperatures Sunday were still 5-15 degrees above seasonal, however.

Air quality could still be concern for some communities, even though our Air Quality Warning expires Monday at 11.

A high pressure system across the West Coast will continue weakening and onshore flow will strengthen through early this week.

Temperatures will cool gradually but still remain above normal away from the beaches at least through mid-week.

Overnight through morning low clouds will likely cover the coast through the week.

Low clouds and fog are expected to expand to most coastal areas each night and morning through Wednesday, with potentials for dense fog.

Remnants of Hurricane Marie are making for potentials for breezy afternoons the next few days.

It's also impacting coastal waters with potentials for strong rip currents through Tuesday.

Low pressure may bring a slight chance of rain to portions of southwest California, Friday into Saturday.

Have a great week!
