It was a warm and windy day for much of the Central Coast.

Many areas saw wind gusts over 20 mph.


These strong winds will be continuing overnight, focused primarily across western portions of the Santa Barbara County south coast.

Areas from Gaviota to Goleta, including the Santa Ynez mountain range could see gusts upwards of 50 mph.

A wind advisory has been issued for these areas that expires Sunday at 3 a.m.


Gusty sundowner winds are also expected to develop across southern Santa Barbara County late Saturday night as well.

An increasing onshore flow brings a return of night and morning low clouds through Sunday.
