Warm Winds Continue to Blow Through Montecito

Wind advisory issued for South Coast through 9 a.m. Monday

Warm, windy conditions kept temperatures elevated in Santa Barbara and Montecito on Sunday, with downtown Santa Barbara recording 85 degrees and Montecito reporting 80 late Sunday. Goleta was relatively cool with high temperatures in the upper 60s at midevening.

The National Weather Service issued a wind advisory for Santa Barbara County’s South Coast, and said breezy to windy conditions are expected through 9 a.m. Monday. Winds between 15 and 30 mph are forecast, with gusts of 45 to 50 mph likely. Officials said Montecito should experience the strongest winds.

The weather service warned motorists — especially those in high-profile vehicles — to use caution while driving in Montecito, on Highway 101 below Gaviota Pass and on Highway 154 through San Marcos Pass.

The winds are expected to die down Monday morning and the rest of the day will be sunny with high temperatures in the upper 70s. Beginning on Tuesday, temperatures should begin cooling off to the upper 60s and lower 70s with clear skies. Overnight temperatures around 50 are forecast.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
