High and gusty winds for the Central Coast this weekend

By RaeAnn Christensen, KSBY Forecaster

We will see some lingering clouds Saturday night from the storm system to the North of us. Skies will remain mostly clear through pretty much the whole week. We will see high winds throughout the weekend. They will be especially high and gusty in Santa Barbara County. Those offshore winds will continue through at least mid-week and will bring warmer than normal temperatures for the coastal areas and inland areas. Some cooling is expected last next week.

Normal fall like weather this weekend, with a slight chance for showers

By RaeAnn Christensen, KSBY Forecaster
We will see normal fall like temperatures for the Central Coast, and a slight chance for showers Saturday. A windy weather pattern is developing across Southwest California this weekend as a weak low pressure system moves across the state and high pressure builds off the coast. There will be a high wind advisory in effect for Santa Barbara County Saturday night into Sunday. Offshore winds are expected Sunday through Wednesday with warmer and drier weather next week. Then slight cooling by Thanksgiving Day.

Rain returns this evening

by Dave Hovde, KSBY Meteorologist

Clouds have been streaming over the Central Coast and this evening a cold front will push over the area for another round of showers and rain.

The timing of the frontal passage looks to be later evening into the early overnight with activity waning by early Friday morning and the balance of Friday being partly cloudy and breezy.

Again the north coast has the best chance of the heaviest totals, but still likely less than .40”. The general range for rain will be .05-.25” with southern SB county and the interior of both counties seeing little to no rain. Please check out social media for graphics relating to rainfall projections.

Another weak cold front will approach the Central Coast on Saturday, and is expected to produce rain as far south as Cambria but at this point I am not putting it in the forecast elsewhere.

After that strong wind develop Sunday at the coast, up to 30mph and as high pressure builds in the winds turn offshore Monday and Tuesday for warm days, cool nights with mostly clear skies.

Light showers still possible

by Dave Hovde, KSBY Meteorologist

Two cold fronts will march thru SLO and SB counties between now and Thursday night, both are weak giving us shower chances. There is a better chance at the coast than inland and north than south. Please see some of the maps posted on social media for a graphical idea of where rain is most likely. It will only rain occasionally (if at all) on both days.

Partly cloudy, mild and breezy conditions will develop on Friday.

There is a front which passes to our north Sunday, no rain locally but strong coastal winds will develop later in the day.

Offshore winds return Monday into the middle of next week for the morning hours, skies will clear out a bit and cold nights and mild days result.

Wednesday rain heaviest on north coast

by Dave Hovde, KSBY Meteorologist

You’ll know a storm system is coming later today when the winds shift to more southerly to southwesterly. Those winds won’t be terribly strong, but could blow at about 15mph.

The cold front moves over the Central Coast Wednesday, rain will start first along the north coast and linger there the longest. First rain could start before 7am but more likely for most of the area around mid-morning. Looks like showers will continue into Wednesday evening but should be gone early Thursday.

The north coast could see as much as a half inch of rain but much of the rest of the area will likely see totals from .05-.15”. Snow levels are too high to be a local concern.

After the front moves through the issue will be winds. Strong NW winds up to 35mph at times could impact the coast in the afternoons Friday through the weekend.

Offshore winds could return early next week for more mild daytime highs but cold overnight lows.
