Most of Santa Barbara County can expect chances of showers through the weekend before the skies clear up for a sunny Sunday afternoon and Labor Day.
According to the National Weather Service, there will be cloudy skies and a 40% chance of showers across the county through Saturday and Sunday morning.
“Most areas are expected to see a light smattering of either showers or drizzle,” said National Weather Service meteorologist David Sweet. “Not too much in the way of amounts, just very light — maybe a few hundredths of an inch, tenth of an inch at most.”
Sweet added that there will be monsoon-like moisture coming from the south, along with marine layer in the mornings.
Temperatures will be in the upper 60s to mid 70s through the weekend and Labor Day on Monday, with warmer temperatures in the inland areas, such as the Santa Ynez Valley, with highs in the mid 70s to mid 80s.
The cloudy skies are expected to clear up Sunday afternoon and remain sunny through Monday.
