A passing system will crank up the winds thru this evening around the area, and a wind advisory continues in the SB county mountains thru Friday morning for locally high wind gusts. The high winds during this exceptional drought has some fire departments staffing up until winds relax.
Warmer and mostly sunny weather will follow on Friday as flow turns offshore. Another quick moving trough will move through the area Saturday night resulting in another round of gusty north winds.
Dry conditions and well above normal temperatures are likely early next week as flow turns offshore again.
These offshore winds will produce near record warm afternoon temperatures and cooler overnight lows.
They will also produce low relative humidity levels and high fire danger.
Models like dry weather thru mid-month, however models continue to suggest that the latter half of the month could be more active with a series of storms coming into northern CA with extending potential for rain as far south as the Central Coast.
