A lot of locals who live in the inland valley communities should be bracing for a hot week and weekend. As a flat ridge of high pressure pushes through the desert southwest, daytime highs will increase each day over the next six days, bringing coastal valleys to the 80s and 90s, and inland valleys to the 90s and low 100s.

For Tuesday, inland valley daytime highs will mostly be in the 90s with a few exceptions, like San Miguel, which is expected to reach 100 degrees. Coastal valley temperatures will also be slightly warmer Tuesday with temperatures climbing to the 70s and 80s. For those along the coast, the marine layer will influence conditions and keep daytime highs closer to the mid to upper 60s Tuesday and Wednesday before daytime highs are expected to reach the 70s by the weekend.

The foggy skies will also fill in over parts of the coastal valleys Tuesday morning before gradual clearing by late morning, which will make for a sunny afternoon. Northwesterly winds are only expected to reach moderate levels Tuesday with maximum wind speeds covering the inland valleys, ranging from 15-25 miles per hour. These breezy conditions are expected to increase by the end of the week.
