A large upper level ridge continues to hold position over the West for Wednesday and Thursday and will force more 100+ degree highs away from the coast. Normal high temps in the Southern Salinas Valley are generally in the low 90s so the expected highs of 100 to 108 are a good departure but still a but shy of some records for the date.
Away from the interior the coastal valleys and beaches will be heavily influenced by marine cooling and some clouds. The closer to the beach you get the cooler the high temps. San Luis Obispo should make the low 80s while Santa Maria get into the upper 70s despite plenty of sun, most beached will get 60s with a few mired in the 50s since beach clouds may only partially clear at a few spots.
If you are looking for a change in the pattern you'll be waiting for the weekend as approaching high pressure into the Pacific NW will allow some cooler air to drive inland reducing the highs from 100+ back into the 90s.
