Heat Wave Headed to Santa Barbara County After One More Day of Gray

After a day of sometimes heavy drizzle, Thursday will be a little drier and cloudy conditions are expected to give way to afternoon sunshine. Temperatures should jump into the 70s and 80s for the weekend, however, as a high-pressure system builds over the region.

The National Weather Service said a lingering low-pressure system will continue to put a damper on Santa Barbara County through midday Thursday. As skies begin to clear, temperatures are expected to rise into the mid-60s.

Friday should see mostly clear skies after morning fog, with daytime highs in the upper 60s.

The weather service said a warming trend should push temperatures into the 70s and 80s on Saturday and Sunday on the South Coast, with highs in the low 90s possible in the backcountry.

Unseasonably warm conditions should continue Monday before a cooling trend returns to the area Tuesday.

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!
