Storm-driven surf that battered the South Coast over the weekend gave way to a pleasant respite Monday. It’s unlikely to last.

The National Weather Service has issued another high surf advisory for Tuesday through the rest of the week. Officials say west-facing beaches will see a large westerly swell with breakers of 6 to 8 feet Tuesday morning.

Fortunately, however, meteorologists expect the overall weather to be mild in Santa Barbara. Sunny skies, calm winds and a high near 70 are expected Tuesday, according to the Oxnard Weather Service. The same goes for the rest of the week, although the skies might cloud up a little Friday night.
