Wind Gust of 50 mph Expected Sunday Night as New Storm Blows In

Strong winds, warmer temperatures forecast through Tuesday

A new storm front was making its way into Northern California early Sunday, promising more wet weather for the Central Coast. The storm will be accompanied by high winds, with gusts up to 50 mph forecast across the Santa Ynez Mountains.

The National Weather Service said Sunday will be mostly cloudy on the South Coast with a 50 percent chance of showers through Sunday night. High temperatures in the 70s are expected.

While most of the rain is expected to remain north of Point Conception, weather service officials said strong northwest to north winds are likely through Tuesday. Wind gusts as high as 50 mph are possible in the mountains and in wind-prone South Coast canyons, beginning Sunday night.

The wind conditions are expected to push the clouds out of the area by Monday afternoon, and Tuesday should be mostly sunny. Temperatures in the mid-70s are forecast for both days.

By Wednesday, the winds are expected to shift to the northwest, with stronger wind gusts likely in Ventura and Los Angeles counties. Travel over the Grapevine on Interstate 5 may be affected.

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!
