Temperatures started heating up Sunday, as our we get our first taste of this heat wave.
Temperatures jumped over 10 degrees for some parts of the Central Coast.
This week's heat wave marks the third one this spring.
Monday's highs are anticipated to be 15-20 degrees above normal.
Because of this, a Heat Advisory has been issued through Monday at 7 p.m.
It's recommended to stay hydrated and keep young children and pets from being left unattended in vehicles.
A big concern Monday is the northeast winds at lower levels and a shrinking marine inversion.
Marine inversion is produced when cold marine air underlies warmer air.
This is resulting in some coastal areas seeing warmer temperatures and heightened concerns for fire danger.
Winds are elevated and gusty to Small Craft Advisory level through Sunday night, before tapering off Monday afternoon.
There are potentials for the Central Coast to see some record-breaking warm temperatures this week, as the heat wave continues.
Stay safe out there!
