As another heat advisory will go into effect Thursday, most maximum temperatures will be around the low to upper 90s Thursday.
The advisory will go into effect at 10:00 a.m. and last until 5:00 p.m. Friday for San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara Counties. Daytime highs along the coast will range from the upper 80s to the mid-90s. For perspective, the average temperature for Pismo Beach for this time of the year is 67 degrees, which means that city could experience nearly a 30 degree difference. The coastal valleys will mostly be around the low to upper 90s. The inland valleys will also be hot and areas like Solvang could reach triple-digits.
As a result of the heat and the Santa Ana wind event in southern California, multiple advisories have been issued through Friday. As previously discussed, relief is in sight. By the weekend, a trough of low pressure will move in over the state and bring cooler daytime highs back to the forecast. The Central Coast could have temperatures in the 60s and 70s by the end of the weekend.
