High pressure is continuing to strengthen over the state which, in turn, is causing inland valley temperatures to really heat up. Daytime highs for the interior areas will be from about 95 degrees to nearly 104 degrees. The coastal valleys will continue to warm-up as well with daytime highs from the mid-70s to the low 80s. Conditions at the coat will be a little different with daytime highs mostly stay between the low to upper 60s.
Strong marine inversion could result in a slower clearing at the beaches and some areas, like the Santa Barbara County South Coast, might be socked in with fog for much of the day.
For those looking for relief from the heat, it's on the way. Cooler temperatures are in the forecast for the weekend ahead with interior valley temperatures cooling back down to the 80s and 90s.
Patchy dense fog has developed at the Santa Maria Airport. Visibility 1/4 mile or less. Dense fog will continue to affect portions of the Central Coast through early Tuesday morning. Motorists slow down and use low beams in fog. #CAwx #CentralCoast pic.twitter.com/fGUIA64A3T— NWS Los Angeles (@NWSLosAngeles) August 13, 2019
