It was a toasty afternoon for many parts of the Central Coast Saturday, with several inland areas reaching 100 degrees or more.

Along with these high temperatures, we saw some dangerously low relative humidity numbers as well. When these numbers get below 25%, it means a fire can spread very easily.

Fire weather conditions will get even worse Sunday, as temperatures continue to rise.

Because of these conditions, a Heat Advisory has been issued for the interior valleys and mountain areas of Santa Barbara County and San Luis Obispo County until Sunday night.


During these warm conditions, it's important to remember to stay hydrated and stay in air conditioned rooms when you can.

An onshore flow will help keep coastal areas relatively cool, but the onshore gusts will be adding to fire concerns Sunday.

Onshore gusts can be 25-40 mph tomorrow, with isolated gusts as high at 45 mph.

Night and morning low clouds and fog will remain around the coast through the weekend before pushing into interior areas by midweek.
