Temperatures were cooler than recent days on Saturday, but still significantly above normal for many areas away from the coast.


This is a trend that will continue for much of our interior valleys through Wednesday.

For Saturday night through Tuesday, an upper level trough over much of the country will mix with upper level highs off Baja and the Pacific Northwest coast.

This will lead to cooling in our coastal areas as well as the redevelopment of the marine layer late Saturday night into Sunday morning.

More clouds are expected Sunday night into Monday, except for the southern Santa Barbara County south coast due to a northerly flow coming off the mountains.

Low clouds and fog can be expected in night and morning hours through the middle of next week.

Winds will be staying on the calmer side Sunday, with no wind advisories or small craft advisories issued at this time.
