Here is a strange thing The Weather Service office out of Oxnard has had to place winter storm warnings on the mountains outside of Santa Barbara last week. Will that trickle down to the coast again this week? Probably not, but let’s see what is in store.
At 853AM PT, Santa Barbara was reporting a temperature of 57 degrees with clear skies. Southern California was bouncing back after a few days of well below normal temperatures and mountain snow, though there were some brisk off shore winds closer to the Oxnard area.
Weak high pressure will hang out in the southwestern US for the next couple of days, and without high pressure building in the southern Great Basin, winds will be moderate as well. Low pressure in the north Pacific will move into the Pacific Northwest, and a light onshore flow might encourage morning fog on Wednesday, while temperatures may remain a little on the cool side.

Forecast.IO has a lo temperature that is nearly as warm as the high temperatures most other outlets have on Wednesday. Interesting gambit. Here is a satellite showing the north Pacific. You can see the big whirl that will drive the onshore flow into Santa Barbara later in the week.
