Very hot temperatures are continuing through early next week, with record high temperatures expected through Sunday.

Paso robles could reach 116 degrees Sunday afternoon!

Overnight lows will also be quite warm, so high risk of heat illness will continue.

Because of this, an Excessive Heat Warning has been issued through Monday for most of the Central Coast.

Serious fire weather concerns continue for the next several days, as minimum humidities are expected between 5-20% and there are potentials for extreme fire behavior due to dry brush.

A Red Flag Warning has been issued for southern Santa Barbara County due to the combination of gusty winds, low relative humidites and dry fuel.

An air quality warning has been issued for northern San Luis Obispo County due to all the wildfire smoke continuing to make its way into this area.
