Wind Advisory Issued Until Wednesday Morning

Breezy conditions, with gusts to 50 mph, were expected in parts of Santa Barbara County Tuesday night into Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service.

Forecasters say north winds will increase to 25-30 mph overnight, prompting issuance of a wind advisory until 7 a.m. Wednesday.

“Gusty winds will make driving hazardous, especially for high-profile vehicles,” the NWS said. “Major roadways that could be impacted by gusty winds include Highway 101 and Highway 154.

“Winds this strong will be capable of downing trees and branches, especially due to the recent wet soil.”

Chilly conditions should persist the next couple days, with overnight lows in the mid-30s and daytime highs in the upper-50s. Inland areas could see some frost and overnight lows dropping below freezing.

Forecasters were calling for a chance of showers Friday through Sunday, but sunny skies returning by Christmas Day.

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!
