Hot weather inland continues

Posted at 7:34 PM, Jul 24, 2018

Paso Robles hit 108 on Tuesday and Wednesday and Thursday could have temperatures just as warm if not warmer.  Heat advisories are in place.  The hot weather is also an issue in the interior of SB county and Southcoast where heat warnings, red flag warnings, and wind advisories are all active.  The combination of heat and dry air and wind could produce dangerous fire weather conditions.  A sundowner is also anticipated later tonight, some winds could be 20-45mph with gusts to 50mph in the passes and canyons of the Southcoast.  High pressure across California will produce breezy northwesterly winds and clear afternoons along the beaches. However, marine low clouds with areas of fog and mist will develop during the night and morning hours.In the coastal regions, the onshore winds will keep temperatures cooler with the daily highs occurring during the late morning hours before the onshore winds coming off the Pacific bring a cool and moist air mass to the coastal valleys during the afternoon hours. Temperatures should begin to cool by the weekend, but will still remain above average across the North County and seasonable at the coast. However, the slightly cooler temperatures in the interior will be short-lived as another modest warming trend is expected early next week.
