A high-pressure system over the West Coast is bringing the heat this week. While temperatures will be warm across valley locations Tuesday, it's expected that Wednesday could actually be the warmest day of the week.

For Tuesday morning commuters, foggy skies continue to blanket coastal regions and coastal valleys. At times, visibility could be lowered out on the roads so it's important drivers keep their low beams on and prepare to increase following distance. As a result, a dense fog advisory will remain in place for San Luis Obispo County's beaches and coastal valleys and northern Santa Barbara's coastal valleys and beaches through 9 a.m.

Winds will continue to be fairly mild Tuesday, which will not help in the clearing of coastal fog. As the winds continue to be gentle to moderate, it could keep daytime highs at the beaches in the 60s. Coastal valley locations will be warming up the 80s Tuesday while interior valleys are going to range from the 90s up to the low 100s.

As the high pressure continues to develop over the west and as wind speeds increase Wednesday, daytime highs across the Central Coast will jump by a few degrees. There could even be some warmer conditions at the coast as stronger winds will help clear out the morning marine layer.
