After a stormy Thursday with rain, thunder, and lightning, the Central Coast will be heading into an unusually hot weekend.

Although most of the Central Coast is out of the woods when it comes to thunderstorm activity, there's still a 20% chance the Cuyama Valley could experience thunderstorms Friday.

An excessive heat warning will be in effect from 11 a.m. Friday through Monday for the inland valleys and Mountains in San Luis Obispo County and the Cuyama Valley. During this time, daytime highs could reach 111 degrees. For the Santa Ynez Valley, a heat advisory will be in effect Saturday and Sunday as temperatures could range from 94 degrees to 104 degrees.

Many people will be heading to the beach to cool off from the inland valley heat but it's going to be hot there as well. Daytime highs will range from the mid-70s to the upper 80s along the coast through the end of the weekend. For the coastal valleys, daytime highs will range from the 80s to the upper 90s.
