A high-pressure ridge continues to dominate the west coast, which means another day of warmer daytime highs for the inland valleys. On Tuesday, more inland communities can expect to feel the heat as triple-digit temperatures will be more widespread in comparison to Monday's conditions. Some cooling is in the forecast as southwesterly flow will bring these temperatures down by a few degrees Wednesday.

Low clouds and fog are filling in over the Central Coast Tuesday morning, mainly at our beaches and in the coastal valleys. The foggy and cloudy conditions will hang along the coast at least until 11 a.m. before gradual clearing starts. These conditions will generally keep temperatures at the coast from the mid to upper 60s, with the exception of Avila Beach, which could reach the low 70s. The coastal valley clouds will start to break up during the morning commute and daytime highs will be right around the mid-70s to the low 80s with mostly clear skies.

It will be breezy at times on Tuesday, with northwesterly winds generally around 10 miles per hour and wind gusts up to 25 mph for parts of the interior valleys in San Luis Obispo County.
