40 mph Gusts Prompt South Coast Wind Advisory Through Monday Morning

Winds gusting to 40 mph were pounding parts of Santa Barbara County’s South Coast on Sunday night, and the National Weather Service issued a wind advisory for the South Coast through midmorning Monday.

As the night wore on, north to northeast winds were increasing to 15 to 25 mph with gusts as high as 40 mph below canyons and passes, the weather service said.

Motorists were advised to use caution on Highway 101 along the Gaviota coast, on Highway 154 over San Marcos Pass and on Highway 192/East Valley Road through the Montecito foothills.

Monday’s forecast calls for clear skies and daytime temperatures in the mid-70s to mid-80s. Gusty winds are likely to develop across the South Coast again Monday night, the weather service said.

Tuesday is expected to bring more of the same weather patterns.

By Wednesday, the weather service is forecasting partly cloudy skies and cooler temperatures in the 60s and 70s during the day, and in the mid-40s to low 50s overnight.

A slight chance of rain is possible Saturday night and Sunday, the weather service said.

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!
