Conditions will be pretty consistent throughout the next three days before temperatures are expected to heat up again for the interior valleys.

The interior valleys will have temperatures from the upper 80s to low 90s on Monday with mostly clear skies. Thursday is when those daytime highs are expected to reach the low 100s as an upper high builds back into the western region.

It’s the first day of school for schools in Santa Maria and conditions are going to be fairly mild there, as well as for the rest of the coastal valleys. Daytime highs will range from the 70s to low 80s with foggy conditions in the morning ahead of late morning clearing from the fog.

The beaches are going to be even cooler and will have temperatures from the mid-60s to the low 70s. Marine layer will be a factor through most of the morning ahead of some afternoon clearing, however, modeling is showing that those marine clouds will stick along the coastline for most of the day.

Monsoonal moisture could get close to the coast in Ventura and Los Angeles Counties and bring some light showers with it but modeling doesn’t show those conditions impacting the Central Coast.
