Gusty sundowner winds are expected in parts of Santa Barbara County Wednesday afternoon into Thursday, according to the National Weather Service.

A wind advisory was issued at mid-afternoon, extending until 3 a.m. Thursday.

The advisory includes the South Coast, and the Santa Ynez Range and foothills.

Northwest winds of 15-25 mph are likely, with gusts to 45 mph, forecasters said.

The National Weather Service indicated the advisory may be extended as far as Saturday.

Daytime highs near the coast are expected in the low- to mid-70s Thursday into Saturday, warming to the lower 80s by Monday.

Inland areas could see highs in the 90s by early next 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!
