It was a seasonal summer day for much of the Central Coast Sunday, with our coastal areas seeing some marine layer and our interior valleys staying on the warmer side.
Near normal temperatures will continue across the area, with night and morning low clouds across coast and coastal valley areas through Tuesday.
Elevated winds are expected near Point Conception and in the western portion of Santa Barbara County, but no Small Craft Advisories have been issued at this time.
Patchy fog, locally dense, with visibility under one mile will continue in the night and morning hours out on the water.
A strong high pressure system is expected to bring a slight warming trend Wednesday through Thursday, with dangerously hot temperatures Friday through Labor Day Weekend.
Prepare for next weekend! We are looking at HOT temps Sat-Mon throughout the area. Impacts will be increased threat of large fires & power outages, and higher risk of heat related illness. Hottest for interior and valleys, but the coast will be hot too! #LAheat #CAheat #CAwx pic.twitter.com/6DSezEZLR3— NWS Los Angeles (@NWSLosAngeles) August 30, 2020
Weaker than normal winds at the beaches during this time will make temperatures even in coastal areas jump 10-20 degrees above normal.
Take the steps to prepare for the extreme heat now, like rescheduling plans that would be outdoors and making a plan in case a fire does break out.
Have a great week!
