A Wind Advisory was issued on Monday for Santa Barbara County’s South Coast and mountain areas.
The advisory, which will be in effect from 3 p.m. Monday until 3 a.m. Tuesday, calls for north winds of 15-25 mph, with gusts to 40 mph, according to the National Weather Service in Oxnard.
Winds are expected to be strongest below canyons and passes west of Goleta.
Forecasters warned that “gusty winds will blow around unsecured objects, and make driving difficult, especially for high-profile vehicles. Tree limbs could be blown down, and a few power outages may result.”
High temperatures on Monday are expected to be around 80 along the coast, and into the mid-90s in some inland locations.
Temperatures should drop by about 10 degrees on Tuesday and through the remainder of the week.
Overnight lows are expected to be in the low-50s.
