Good Morning Central Coast! To kick off this week hot temperatures are sticking around in the interior valleys and are going to be there for a few more days at least.
Thankfully there is a break in these conditions coming up by the end of the week so that is at least something to be thankful for.
The high pressure system that is sticking around over the south east is allowing for more offshore flow, and sunshine all while keeping the marine layer confined to the beaches and some coastal valleys. This is the perfect recipe for those hot conditions inland and mild (even sometimes chilly) spots by the coasts.
Most beaches and coastal communities have quite a bit of fog this morning limiting some visibility but mainly paving the way for the cooler temperatures for the afternoon.
Elsewhere in the interior valleys it is going to be hot! Triple digit highs up to 107 are possible this afternoon in the interior valleys. By the coasts highs in the mid 60s are likely with 70s in the coastal valleys.
Due to the extreme heat there is an Extreme Heat Advisory for the interior valleys for both San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties. This brings the risk of dangerous heat up to 108 degrees in the Paso Robles area. Take extra caution with sensitive individuals as well as pets. At this point sidwalks and roads will be much hotter than the air temperature and can easily blister paw pads in just minutes. The advisory will stay in effect through 8:00pm. Even though one hasn't been issued just yet I am expecing one to be issued for Tuesday as well.
This same pattern of temperatures more similar to August than June for Tuesday and Wednesday. Thankfully by Wednesday afternoon the extreme heat will slightly let off before a bigger cooldown takes over.
By Thursday a cold front will push south from the Pacific Northwest. This will drive the heat away slightly and make temperatures fall dramatically. Highs in the low 90s and upper 80s are likely by Thursday in the interior valleys. It looks like the 4th of July (although it is not quite on the 7day forecast yet) looks to be comfortable with abundant sunshine!
Have a great day Central Coast!
