More cooling towards the coast, inland valleys still reaching triple digits Wednesday

Posted at 5:31 AM, Aug 08, 2018

Temperatures along the coastline are starting to back off a little thanks to marine layer. Temperatures for the beaches will still be warm on Wednesday but will range from the 60s to low 80s. If you’re still looking to beat the heat, heading out to Morro Bay looks to be a good idea on Wednesday because temperatures will be in the mid-60s there.

The coastal valleys will also see some of that marine influence with morning fog that will burn off in the later morning hours. Daytime highs will be from the mid-70s to upper 80s, backing off from the 90s.

The interior valleys still have the opportunity to reach the low 100s. This includes Paso Robles, Atascadero, Shandon and California Valley. There doesn’t look to be much relief from the heat in sight, however, daytime highs could go back into the upper 90s as early as Friday. An air quality alert for the interior portions in San Luis Obispo County remains in place until 2:00 p.m. Wednesday as smoke drifts from the fires burning to the north of the Central Coast.

Winds are also calming down and will be within a 10-20 mile per hour range for the most part, with wind gusts looking to stay below 30 mph.
