It's going to be another hot day for many of the inland communities in San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara Counties. Daytime highs will be from the low 90s all the way up to 103 degrees with mostly clear skies. By mid-week, temperatures will start to taper off slightly and inland valley temperatures will be in the 90s.

Tropical Depression Ivo is mostly gone, but the remnants from the storm is producing locally cloudy skies across the coastal valleys and along the coastline. Weather modeling is showing the stratus and mid to high level clouds will linger through most of the morning and afternoon. Temperatures at the coast will stay right around the mid to upper 60s, while the coastal valleys will range from the mid-70s to low 80s.

Winds will be breezy Monday morning for northern Santa Barbara County in areas like Lompoc and Solvang. By Monday night, gusty winds are expected to pass through the canyons of the Santa Ynez range but those conditions will be below advisory level.
