The forecast is not changing much throughout the week. We're waking up to overcast, even misty, conditions for much of the Central Coast.

The marine layer will be stubborn along the coast again today. Beaches will be socked in until midday or early afternoon. Coastal and inland valleys should see partly to mostly sunny skies by mid-morning.

Daytime highs for the beaches will range from mid 60s to mid 70s. Coastal valleys will have temperatures in the mid to upper 70s with some places like San Luis Obispo approaching 80. It will be another warm day inland with highs forecast between low 80s and mid 90s.

Winds were a challenge for firefighters in Paso Robles Monday as they battled the River Fire. They are expected to pick up again this afternoon 10-20 mph with gusts possible up to 30.

At the coast, the northwesterly flow is just enough to keep the marine layer in place but the winds aren't strong enough to produce clear skies.

A heat advisory is in effect for the Central Valley Tuesday-Saturday night as temperatures soar up to 105 degrees.
