Santa Barbara County Once Again in Grip of Summer Heat

One of the hottest summers in Santa Barbara County in recent memory shows no sign of abating.

Another stretch of blistering weather is forecast Thursday into the weekend, with temperatures in the 90s near the coast, and approaching triple digits inland, according to the National Weather Service in Oxnard.

Thursday’s forecast high in Santa Barbara is 91, followed by 90 on Friday and 86 on Saturday.

Santa Maria may be a degree or two hotter, while Santa Ynez is expected to reach the 100-degree mark Friday and Saturday.

Overnight lows are forecast to be around 60 degrees.

Winds of 10-15 mph are expected, with gusts to 25 mph.

The latest round of above-normal temperatures is due to a high-pressure system hanging over Southern California, which is keeping cooler marine air mainly offshore.

Temperatures are expected to return to near normal 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!
