San Luis Obispo hit an all-time heat record today, reaching 115 degrees at the airport. The record was 105 degrees in 1955.

Santa Maria also broke their record for the day at 106. That record was 74 degrees set in 1984.

Dangerous heat is expected to stick around through the evening with an excessive heat warning in effect for interior valleys of San Luis Obispo County. 

Tropical storm Lidia is centered over central Baja right now, pushing moisture into our atmosphere.

Expect humid conditions and a slight chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms Sunday into Tuesday.

Weather is expected to return to near normal conditions by Wednesday with the return of the marine layer and some cooler temperatures.
