From the coast to the inland valleys, Tuesday will be another hot day

Posted at 5:32 AM, Aug 07, 2018

Monday was a scorcher wither daytime highs along the coast even reaching triple digits. Pismo Beach got all the way up to 100 degrees, putting it right up there with the interior valleys.

Tuesday looks a little different but it will still be very warm as an upper high will peak and keep temperatures in the triple digit range for the interior portions.

The inland valleys are still looking to be from the upper 90s to low 100s on Tuesday. An air quality alert remains in place for Fresno, Kern, Kings and Tulare Counties as a result of wildfires burning east of the Central Coast. The smoke from those fires could travel westbound again Tuesday creating hazy conditions for northern San Luis Obispo County.

With the exception of the North Coast, although not that much far behind, the beaches and coastal valleys will have similar conditions Tuesday. Ranging from the upper 80s to upper 90s, those areas will again be breezy with winds within a 15-20 mile per hour range throughout the daylight hours before calming down Tuesday night.

A Red Flag Warning is still in place for Santa Barbara County and portions of San Luis Obispo County mountains through Tuesday night. Also in Santa Barbara County, there is an excessive heat warning that will expire Tuesday at 8:00 p.m.

It looks like triple-digit heat could taper off slightly by Sunday, but even then, temperatures will remain in the upper 90s for the interior valleys.
