Some areas of Northern SLO County started off Friday with locally dense fog but otherwise, patchy fog is clearing by mid-morning. A frost advisory for Santa Barbara County expires at 9 a.m.

Expect mostly clear skies and plenty of sunshine, thanks to offshore flow. Winds will be fairly light.

Daytime highs will be warmest for the coastal valleys. San Luis Obispo is expecting a high of 75. Inland valleys will see upper 60s Friday, except for the Santa Ynez Valley where temps will climb into the upper 70s. It's possible Solvang could hit 80.

High surf advisory is in effect through Friday night with breaking waves 10-14 feet for both SLO and Santa Barbara counties.

Onshore flow returns late tonight into Saturday, dropping highs by a few degrees and allowing the marine layer to redevelop. Temperatures will be in the upper 60s for most places through Monday.

A warming trend starts Tuesday into midweek.

In Southern California, fire weather conditions remain a major concern through at least Saturday night. Gusts are forecast to reach 40-50 mph with relative humidities in the single digits.
