    **AIR QUALITY ALERT for San Luis Obispo County through Monday morning....

    A fairly strong ridge of high pressure will persist over California and Nevada through the weekend.  Although the high will weaken some while moving slowly east, changes will be on the minimal side through the weekend.  Daytime highs will remain above average in almost all areas this weekend, with the exception of the Central Coast beaches.  Each night and morning, we can expect to see areas of low clouds and fog, with clearing taking place each afternoon.  Upper level moisture is expected to increase this weekend as well, making the air mass feel a little more sticky than usual.

    Temperatures early next week may cool another degree or two, but will remain above average for this time of the year.  The extra mugginess is expected to linger through at the least the middle of next week, with a slight chance for afternoon storms in our local mountains.  Since the higher amounts of moisture look to stay well east of our area, I'm afraid the main impact of any developing storms might be dry lightning instead of rain.  Some additional cooling will be possible late next week, but even so, temps look to stay above the 80 degree mark in Santa Barbara over the next 7 days.
