Gusty Winds, 50% Chance of Rain in Forecast, but Sunshine on Its Way, Too

A cold front that has given Northern California a good soaking over the last two days was expected to move through Santa Barbara County overnight, bringing a likelihood of showers.

National Weather Service forecasters were calling for a 50-percent chance of rain, with the largest amounts falling north of Point Conception.

The front was expected to bring gusty conditions as well, prompting forecasters to issue a wind advisory through 3 a.m Tuesday.

North to northwest winds of 15-30 mph were forecast, with gusts to 45 mph.

Motorists were being urged to use caution, especially in the mountains, near passes, and along the Gaviota coast.

Monday was expected to remain cloudy through midmorning, before giving way to sunny skies and daytime highs in the low to mid-70s the remainder of the 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!
