Clear skies, warm temperatures and dry conditions is what's on tap for the forecast over the next five days. Aside from the heat, the winds will continue to be a factor Monday morning as a wind advisory will carry out through 9:00 a.m. for the mountains, foothills and coastline in Santa Barbara County.

A strong ridge of high pressure will continue to strengthen over the state Monday night through Tuesday morning, which will continue the warming trend.

The beaches will be right around the mid-70s Monday and some coastal valley temperatures have the potential to reach the low 90s. The inland valleys will actually be slightly cooler and have daytime highs around the mid-80s.
