High pressure continues to dominate the weather pattern this week, keeping temperatures warm, especially for inland locations. 

Paso Robles and parts of northern SLO County will see daytime highs Tuesday in the upper 90s and triple digits for some spots. Plenty of sunshine inland but be aware of poor air quality. Drifting wildfire smoke from Northern California has prompted an air quality warning. Limit your time outside if you are particularly sensitive to smoke. 

At the coast, the morning and overnight marine low clouds are being ushered in by light onshore winds. Temperatures will mostly be in the 70s at the coast while coastal valleys will see low 80s Tuesday. 

Paso Robles and neighboring communities will see temperatures trend downward by Friday. 

The rest of the Central Coast will see fairly consistent daytime highs throughout the week with partly cloudy skies each day. 

By Friday, the ridge of high pressure starts to flatten out and a trough looks to push in early next week bringing cooler conditions.
