The only advisory in local weather is the wind advisory for the Santa Barbara county mountains, passes and canyons and adjacent Southcoast. Local winds tonight could gust 25-35mph with gust near Gaviota as high as 55mph. 5pm to midnight looks to be the timing of the biggest concern. The higher winds Saturday will likely be in the Montecito area.

Other than that the forecast is still on track. An upper low will start moving thru The West. Some showers in northern California are already happening. We won't see rain but we will see deeper marine influence. At the coast that will mean clouds in the night and morning hours and some beaches could see lingering clouds this weekend. Coastal and interior valleys will clear but highs will be blower normal inland. Saturday northern SLO county will likely stay shy of 90, coastal valleys in the 70s and beaches in the 60s. Afternoon NW winds up to 20mph. Sunday looks very similar at the coast but inland the trend already starts to warm, back into the 90s.

Next week inland temps return to 95-98 degrees Monday-Tuesday but Wednesday-Friday temps again cool to below average. It has been a relatively mild summer so far.

Coastal changes will be minor, there will be some minor warming early next week but it should only be a few degrees but as with interior areas we'll see additional cooling late next week.

The position of this trough late next week will mean we keep monsoon moisture out of the area.
