Happy Thursday Central Coast! It is going to be another hot one but thankfully heat will be peaking today.

Thanks to the combination of already warm weather, offshore flow and downslope heating will peak daytime highs in the upper 90s. It will be so warm that even temperatures in the low triple digits are possible.

Be sure to stay hydrated, limit outdoor exposure and check in on sensitive family friends and neighbors.
All the hot weather we are seeing is to do with a high pressure air mass that is sitting to our East, it is pushing air into our region from the south east. That air will push down into the valleys, as it compresses it will warm and dry.

Friday will knock a few degrees off of Thursdays highs (although it will still be very warm) then by the weekend we will cool down to near normal to head into next week.

Have a great Thursday Central Coast!
