Moderate to fresh (13 to 24 mph) Santa Lucia (northeasterly/offshore) winds are forecast on Saturday into Sunday morning. In turn, high temperatures will reach into the low to mid-80s in the inland valleys (Santa Ynez), the coastal valleys (Santa Maria and Lompoc) and along the beaches this weekend. However, tule fog is likely across the Central Valley.

The marine layer with areas of fog and mist is expected to develop on Sunday night along the coastline and will deepen and move into the coastal valleys on Monday, while the inland valleys will remain clear and warm.

Strong to gale-force (25 to 38 mph) northwesterly winds and mostly clear skies will develop on Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday morning. The marine layer will redevelop by Wednesday night into Friday with areas of fog and mist during the night and morning.

At this time, the longer-range models do not indicate any rain for Central or Southern California through next week; however, unsettled weather with a chance of rain could develop over the Thanksgiving Day holiday.
