Mercury heading to 80-degrees plus at the beaches!

High pressure and Santa Ana winds are warming us today, particularly at the coast. Several spots on the Central Coast have warmed into the 60s so far this morning and that will continue as the day progresses, bringing spots that rarely see high 70s (think Morro Bay, for example), up to the 80-degree threshold!

Meantime, drivers of high-profile vehicles will want to stay alert. Sustained winds between 15 and 30 MPH, may also bring gusts in excess of 50 MPH in the inland canyons and mountains.

You'll also see a fairly unusual reversal of high temperature distribution today. While the beaches bask in the 80s, inland areas (think Cuyama, California Valley, and Paso Robles) will struggle to make it into the mid-70s.

The Santa Ana winds will also dry out the vegetation, increasing fire risks, so please use care if you're operating machinery that can cause sparks.

Here's a quick look at the highs we're expecting today:
Paso Robles-77
Morro Bay-81
San Luis Obispo-82
Pismo Beach-80
Santa Maria-81
Los Alamos-81
Santa Barbara-83
