Friday was HOT and these warm, dry conditions look to stick around this weekend as high pressure lingers on the Central Coast.

Afternoon temps reached mid to high 90's for most of the region and Saturday is looking similar. The NWS says these temps were way above normal for this time of the year.

Here's the forecast for Saturday: beaches looking to hit low 80's, coastal valleys low to mid-90's, inland valleys reaching upper 90's to triple digits.

A heat advisory took effect Friday morning and was extended until Saturday at 7 p.m.

Evening and overnight hours could also be very warm, but valleys and coastal area will see some relief.

The beaches look to cool off just a tad this weekend as a slight onshore trend emerges. Coastal areas may see some marine fog overnight. That's expected to push farther inland later next week.

A significant cooling trend is expected Sunday bringing relief from the weekend heat.

The marine layer is M.I.A. this weekend, but looks to return overnight Sunday.

Low pressure begins to build early next week and could even bring enough moisture to produce drizzle.

This approaching trough could help drop temps nearly 20 degrees by Tuesday.
