Santa Barbara County Advised: More Wind on the Way

Get ready for more wind.

That’s the word from the National Weather Service, which issued a wind advisory that will be in effect from 6 p.m Sunday until 3 a.m. Monday.

Northwest winds of 20 to 30 mph — with gusts to 45 mph — are expected to develop over the Santa Ynez range Sunday evening, forecasters said.

On the South Coast, it should be slightly calmer — 15 to 25 mph winds, with gusts to 35 mph.

Drivers, especially of high-profile vehicles, were warned that the windy conditions will make travel more difficult, especially below canyons and passes and along major highways such as 101, 154 and 192.

Temperatures Sunday and Monday were expected in the high 70s near the coast, and several degrees warmer inland.

Things should cool down by Tuesday and Wednesday, when there actually is a chance of drizzle in the forecast.

Then it’s back to the mid-70s by the Memorial Day weekend.

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!
