It will be a windy start to the day for the south coast, mountains, and foothills across Santa Barbara County.

A wind advisory will remain in place through 3 a.m. Tuesday as wind gusts continue to peak near 50 miles per hour. The winds will be strongest throughout the morning and late afternoon hours. A trough of low pressure that is moving in over the state will create a northerly push, resulting in gusty winds across Santa Barbara County

Daytime highs across the Central Coast will be slightly below average. At the coast, temperatures will range from the upper 50s to mid-60s, while coastal and inland valleys will stay between the mid-60s and low 70s.

The rest of the week will have fairly consistent weather conditions. By Thanksgiving Day, daytime highs will be slightly below average and skies will be mostly sunny.
