Multiple advisories are lined up to go into effect on Tuesday as a result of hot temperatures. While most of the impacts from the heat will be felt in the interior portions of the Central Coast, daytime highs will also heat up for the coastal valleys.

Paso Robles has a daytime high of 104 degrees on Monday, which will continue to climb heading into Tuesday and Wednesday. Temperatures above 100 degrees will be common throughout the inland valleys this week as a result of high pressure expanding. A heat advisory for San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara Counties will go into effect on Tuesday at 10:00 a.m. and last until Thursday night.

Santa Barbara County has both an excessive heat watch and fire weather watch Tuesday through Thursday. Winds will be fairly mild on Monday, but that could change heading into Tuesday as winds pick-up and continue into Wednesday with advisory level sundowner winds. With temperatures rising and low humidity, there is potential for critical fire weather across the region.

The coastal valleys will not be as warm on Monday with daytime highs in the upper 70s to the low 90s. Areas along the north coast will be the place to be to beat the heat with temperatures from the upper 60s to low 70s. Pismo Beach and Avila Beach will be in the mid to upper 70s making for a great day to go to the beach.
