The inland valleys will continue to be hit triple-digit temperatures on Thursday. A lot of people will be heading to the California Mid-State Fair for a sold-out country music show and it will be hot with an expected daytime high of 110 degrees. Winds will be mild throughout the afternoon in Paso Robles with potential for gusts to reach about 26 miles per hour. This triple digit heat for the interior valleys isn’t going anywhere and will stay through the weekend. However, instead of being close to 110 degrees, they’ll be closer to 100.Coastal valleys are still on the warmer side but daytime highs in those areas backing off by a few degrees on Thursday. Temperatures will range from the upper 70s to the upper 90s with mostly sunny skies. The beach will be the place to go to beat the heat. After morning marine layer burns off, beaches like Pismo Beach and Avila Beach will warm up close to 80 degrees on Thursday. For more of a cool down, Morro Bay will be in the mid-60s throughout the rest of the week.Multiple warnings remain in place through Thursday, including an Air Quality Warning for San Luis Obispo County and Fire Weather Warning and Red Flag Advisory for Santa Barbara County. Continuing into Friday an Excessive Heat Warning will be in place for Santa Barbara County, as well as a heat advisory for both San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara County.
