“This week will be dry and cooler than last week, with highs in the upper 70s and low 80s,” says Jack Martin of Action Roofing. “Winds will hang around for the next couple of days, but at a more manageable 10 to 25 miles per hour. Some fog might even return to our forecast mid-week. Thursday, a weak system rolls though—this will do nothing more than create another wind event behind it. Forecast models are hinting that another round of heavy wind from Montecito to L.A. is possible Thursday night into Friday.” Email [email protected] to receive his daily updates.
