Lightning bolts are visible in the Santa Barbara Channel over Santa Cruz Island in this 30-second time exposure taken during Sunday night’s thunderstorms.

Thunderstorms are sweeping through the county, complete with muggy temps and dazzling lightning displays, but those will likely go away later in the week, making way for clearer skies and more seasonal temperatures.

According to PG&E meteorologist John Lindsey, an upper-level low-pressure system is staying off the coast, bringing monsoon moisture across the county.

Expect more thunderstorms Tuesday and Wednesday over the mountains, partly cloudy skies and muggy conditions in the coastal valleys and morning marine clouds and fog along the beach.

The low-pressure system will head inland Thursday, bringing strong winds, more morning and night marine fog and mist, seasonal temperatures and clear late-morning and afternoon skies through the weekend.
