Highs in the mid-80s are forecast throughout the county on Turkey Day, according to the National Weather Service.

The warm up begins Tuesday, with highs in the mid-70s to mid-80s in most coastal areas.

“It will be warming up tomorrow,” said Curt Kaplan, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Oxnard.

Wednesday calls for the hottest temperatures on Santa Santa Barbara’s South Coast, with sunny skies and highs in the upper-70s and 80s.

Montecito is expected to see highs near 83 degrees beginning Tuesday, with Wednesday day’s high predicted to be near 87 degrees and Thursday’s temperature near 86 degrees.

Temperatures should then drop into the 70s to around 80 degrees Friday on the South Coast, the weather service said.

Santa Ynez Valley is predicted to reach lows in the upper-40s to mid-50s, except the lower to mid-60s in the hills Thursday night.

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!
