After an overcast day Monday, the weather pattern is making a shift and skies will be mostly clear.

High pressure ridging will bring mostly clear skies and warmer temperatures Tuesday. As of 4:45 a.m. Tuesday, the satellite radar was picking up some cloud cover off the coastline near Lompoc as well as parts of the Santa Ynez Valley. However, the afternoon hours will likely be mostly clear and sunshine will be widespread.

Ventura County is under a wind advisory, but the Santa Barbara County is not included in it. Still, areas across Santa Barbara County could experience gusty conditions starting as early as Tuesday morning. Across both counties, the range in wind speeds will be wide, ranging from 10-25 miles per hour.

Temperature-wise, the Central Coast is warming up. Most of the coastal and inland valleys will reach daytime highs in the 70s. Pismo Beach will also likely reach the low 70s, but other beaches along the north coast, including Morro Bay, will be closer to the upper 60s. The warmer conditions will stick around through Wednesday before cooling begins Thursday. It will be gradual cooling for most areas, but the end of the week could include some unsettled weather with a chance of rain.
