Monday is beginning with typical morning cloud cover and fog along the coast. Pockets of drizzle are even possible for coastal locations.
Onshore flow will not allow for much clearing of the clouds at the coast. Meanwhile, it will create breezy winds in the interior and keep temperatures slightly cooler.
Daytime highs at the beaches are expected to be in the mid-60s today. Coastal valleys will see upper-60s and low-70s and the inland valleys will top out in the upper-70s and low-80s.
Tuesday marks the beginning of a significant warming trend. An upper-level ridge will build in causing temperatures gradually increase over the course of the week.
The coast and coastal valleys will end the week with daytime highs in the mid-to-upper-70s. Some locations may even hit 80 degrees or more.
Inland valleys are looking at the possibility of triple-digit heat this weekend. By Friday, Paso Robles is expecting a daytime high in the high-90s.
Fasting clearing of the morning marine layer and more abundant sunshine across the region is predicted along with the arrival of the ridge.
