Temperatures sky rocketed Monday, with some areas nearly 20 degrees warmer than Sunday afternoon.


Places like San Luis Obispo broke a record from 2014, reaching 99 degrees.

Along the coast wasn't much cooler, places like Pismo Beach reached over 95 degrees today, likely caused by a downsloping wind event, or thermally driven winds.

Temperatures Tuesday will be slightly cooler than what we saw Monday as a trough moves in, bringing some onshore flow.

It will be only a brief reprieve however as a second trough moves through and brings reinforcing shot of offshore winds, bringing a warmer air mass in.

Temperatures Wednesday and Thursday in our valley areas will likely reach over 100 degrees, with inland coastal areas to the mid 90s.

We are experiencing elevated fire weather concerns during this time but no red flag warning just yet.


Our heat advisory will be continuing through Wednesday for some parts of Santa Barbara County, with mountain areas of Santa Barbara County seeing that advisory extended through Friday.

Have a great day!
