Warmer weather will develop across the Central Coast on Sunday through next week as high pressure over the West Coast dominates our weather. In fact, dry and warm weather is expected for the foreseeable future. Over this period, areas of marine low clouds with fog and mist will develop during the night and morning hours.

High temperatures are forecasted to be in the upper 60s to mid-70s at the coast, low to low 80s for the immediate coastal valleys and mid 80s for the Santa Ynez Valley. Fire danger will escalate with development of any dry and strong wind events.
