A heat advisory will remain in place for the inland valley communities in San Luis Obispo through 7:00 p.m. Thursday. During this time, daytime highs are expected to be from at least 92 degrees. Some areas, like San Miguel, do have the potential to reach triple digits over the next two-day period.

As for the rest of the Central Coast, daytime highs will be moderate. Most of the beaches will stay within the low to mid-70s range, while the coastal valleys will hover somewhere between the mid-70s and low 80s.

Winds for the inland valleys will be mild, shifting out of the southwest Tuesday afternoon with gusts up to 20 miles per hour. Southwesterly winds are expected to be slightly less gusty along the coast and within the coastal valleys, with peak winds closer to 15 mph. For those along the south coast region in more wind-prone areas, like Gaviota, expect wind gusts to be closer to 25 mph.

By the end of the week, the weather pattern shifts as a low pressure system develops off the Central Coast. This will bring cooler temperatures and increasing cloud cover to the area. Daytime highs will be closer to the 60s and 70s by the end of the week and into the weekend.
