Monday was a scorcher and temperatures stayed warm well into the night. Tuesday won't be much different with the exception of some coastal areas, which is because offshore flow will weaken slightly. This means that beaches will likely be closer to the 80s Tuesday instead of the upper 90s. For the coastal and inland valleys, peak temperatures will be in the upper 80s and 90s.

The heat advisory for San Luis Obispo County will remain in place through 5:00 p.m. Wednesday as hot daytime highs remain in the forecast from the coast to the inland valleys. However, even after the advisory expires, temperatures will stay on the warmer side through the end of the week. Areas like Pismo Beach aren't expected to reach seasonal temperatures until Sunday when daytime highs trend back down to the 60s. For Santa Barbara County, the same advisory will remain in place for valley locations through Friday night.

Offshore flow and the upper-level high that's been bringing the heat to the Central Coast will continue to bring clear skies Tuesday. In terms of the winds, peak wind gusts are expected to range from 10-20 miles per hour through late afternoon.
