Paso Robles tied a heat record Saturday with 13 days in a row reaching triple-digit temperatures. If temperatures reach 100 degrees again on Sunday, it will break a record set in 1961.

Above normal temperatures are expected to continue with a heat wave expected next week.

An excessive heat watch will begin on Monday morning, lasting through Tuesday evening for Santa Barbara County with inland portions of the coast reaching up to 98 degrees and 110 in valleys.

Gusty sundowner winds are expected for the Santa Barbara South Coast and adjacent foothills through Monday night for Santa Barbara County.  Gusts may reach up to 40 mph and slightly stronger from Gaviota to San Marcos Pass.

The marine layer is expected to stick around on the coastline.
