Temperatures are warming back up for the Central Coast ahead of the three-day weekend. As high pressure builds up again over the west coast, inland communities can expect triple-digit temperatures as early as Saturday. The warming will continue through Monday and temperatures should taper off slightly back to the low to upper 90's.
Besides the heat, another factor in the forecast is the sundowner winds over Santa Barbara County's south coast region and inland valleys and foothills. Another advisory will likely be issued as sustained winds will range from 20-30 miles per hour with gusts up to 50 mph from Friday night through early Saturday morning.
Temperatures at the coast will stay between 62 and 70 degrees Friday. Fog and marine layer will fill in over the coastline before gradual clearing starts by late morning. The coastal valleys will also have some patchy mid-level clouds and fog throughout the morning commute before late morning clearing. By the afternoon, daytime highs will range from 75-82 degrees for much of the coastal valley regions.
