Another hot day today for the Central Coast, but expect it to get a little hotter through at least Friday.

Upper level high pressure continues to build combined with a weak offshore flow will bring clear skies, and very warm and dry conditions for the rest of the week.

Heat advisories were added to the Santa Barbara County coastline and extended until 5 p.m. Friday for all of San Luis Obispo County and the Santa Ynez Valley.

Daytime highs at the beach are looking to reach low to mid-90's, with temperatures in the upper 90's for coastal and interior valleys.

Northeast winds are expected to increase later Tuesday night ranging from 10 to 20 MPH.

Offshore flow looks to increase slightly Wednesday, but marine layer will be almost non-existent for the area and won't help with cooling in morning and evening hours.

Some cooling is expected this weekend with temperatures dropping to near normal by Monday.
