San Luis Obispo County remains under a wind advisory Tuesday morning as northerly and northeasterly winds continue to reach 20-25 miles per hour with wind speeds close to 40 mph.

After the advisory expires at 10 a.m., the offshore flow will continue to be a factor in the forecast and keep daytime highs above average and skies clear. Most coastal valley areas will stay within the 70s, while beaches will range from the 60s and low 70s. For inland valleys, the Santa Ynez Valley will be around the mid to upper 70s, and the SLO County interior valleys will stay closer to the mid to upper 60s.

Fire level concern will be heightened due to the dry and warm weather which is going to remain in the forecast through the end of the week. Daytime highs will begin to trend down by just a few degrees Wednesday as a shallow trough makes its way over the west through Wednesday. As this is happening, it's likely that the Central Coast will start to see the redevelopment of coastal clouds and marine layer in the overnight hours.
