Cool, Rainy Conditions Expected Monday in Santa Barbara County

After basking in summer-like weather over the weekend, Santa Barbara County is headed for wind and rain Monday and Tuesday, as a cold storm front from the Pacific Northwest makes its way through the region.

Rainfall amounts are expected to be fairly light — a tenth to three-quarters of an inch, according to the National Weather Service.

Totals are likely to be higher in northern Santa Barbara County and San Luis Obispo County than on the South Coast.

The chance of rain Monday was pegged at 70 percent, falling to 30 percent Monday night.

There is a slight chance of thunderstorms, according to Robbie Munroe, a weather service meteorologist in Oxnard.

Skies are expected to begin clearing Tuesday.

A wind advisory has been issued, extending from 10 a.m. Monday until 4 a.m. Tuesday. Winds of 15-30 mph are forecast, with gusts to 50 mph possible Monday afternoon.

A high surf advisory also has been issued for areas north of Point Conception.

From 4 a.m. Monday until 8 a.m. Tuesday, surf of 8 to 12 feet is possible, especially on northwest-facing beaches.

Daytime highs in the upper 60s and low 70s are expected through the end of the week, followed by another warming trend.

Overnight lows should be in the 40s this week.

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!
