A wind advisory is still in place for Santa Barbara county Monday morning. The advisory covers areas from Point Conception stretching down the coast to Carpinteria, and well into the mountains and foothills that line up near Highway 166 in Santa Barbara County. Sustaining winds will generally be from 20-35 miles per hour, with potential for wind gusts to peak from 40-50 mph. The advisory will expire on Tuesday at 3 a.m.

Foggy conditions were reported in the coastal valleys and along the coastline around 6:00 a.m. Monday.

While San Luis Obispo County isn't under any such advisory Monday morning, windy conditions were covering much of the Coastal Valleys. San Luis Obispo had 13 mph winds at 3 a.m. Monday, which is abnormal for that hour.

Other details with the forecast include mostly clear skies as breezy conditions persist. A trough of low pressure that is bringing the wind over the west coast will keep our daytime highs on the cooler side through Tuesday. The inland valleys will likely struggle to get past the mid-80s Monday, and the coastal valleys won't be too far behind with temperatures from the mid to upper 70s. Along the coast, temperatures will range from the low 60s to the low 70s.
