Wind Advisory Issued for Santa Barbara Into Tuesday

Santa Barbara County's South Coast will get hit with strong sundowner winds Monday evening, according to the National Weather Service, which issued a wind advisory until 3 a.m. Tuesday.

There will be gusty winds across the Santa Ynez Mountains, especially through passes and canyons, forecasters said.

The strongest gusts, expected west of Goleta, can make driving difficult on Highway 101 near Gaviota and State Route 154.

There is also a hazardous weather outlook in effect for mariners and beachgoers, with gale-force winds on the water, and an elevated risk of rip tides on Monday, according to the National Weather Service.

After a record-breaking heat wave last week, Santa Barbara and the South Coast will be mostly sunny, with highs in the mid-70s through the weekend. Nighttime temperatures will drop to the mid-50s.

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!
