Here is a look at some of the highs today.  The 108 in Paso Robles really stands out because it was only 5 degrees off the record for today.

Adjusted #PasoRobles temperature to 108, still not the 113 record.. but safe to say it was not. #SLO was plenty warm as well in the 90s.

Here is a video version of Dave Hovde’s forecast.

100-plus degree heat is lingering in the valleys and today is one of the warmest days. Weak onshore winds have not provided any relief to the inland temps and with a low marine layer and plenty of high pressure looks like the 100 degree run could continue 4 or 5 more days before return to normal next week.

There is also mugginess at mid-levels, this produced a thunderstorm over the rural Santa Barbara county mountain area bordering Ventura county near the 33. Some 1+” rainfall rates were picked up by Doppler and a flash flood warning was issued for that area, but the larger threat of thunderstorms looks minor.

Heat advisories have been extended thru Wednesday for upper elevations in SLO/SB interior areas:

The heat advisory has been extended thru Thursday for the dangerous combination of heat and humidity.

At the coast the marine clouds were worn away and temps warmed. Partly cloudy skies with 70s at the beaches and 70s to mid 80s are expected for the coastal valleys for the next few days.

The upper high still looks to move westward throughout the day on Friday. Afternoon high temperatures should rise across the interior but there will also be increased onshore flow which should will cool the coasts and some valleys.

Little change in weather conditions over the weekend.

Next week inland heat stays on thru Tuesday then we’ll see some cooling. At the beaches dense fog could return and be stubborn and coastal valleys should remain in the 70s and 80s. Mid-week the night and morning marine clouds will make it further into the valleys.
