Looking ahead to the weekend, temperatures are expected to heat up as high pressure begins to build. Coastal valleys will see temperatures in the high 80s to low 90s, beaches will see temperatures in the high 60s and low 70s, and inland locations will soar to the triple digits.

Paso Robles has a shot of nearing a daily heat record, which was 105 degrees in 2004. The forecast high for Paso Robles is 102 degrees.

Weak onshore flow will limit the overnight marine layer to the coast into Monday, otherwise fair skies are expected.

Low pressure will move into the region by Tuesday for near-normal temperatures and overnight clouds, fog, and patchy drizzle into Friday.
