The weather forecast continues to be pretty consistent with the last seven days, which includes morning marine layer at the coast and in some of the local valley locations, followed by gradual afternoon clearing. There's still a chance some clouds could struggle to clear at local beaches, but other areas, like the Santa Ynez Valley, might not see much fog throughout the morning as onshore flow continues to weaken.

By this afternoon, inland valley temperatures will be hot, especially for the deep interiors like San Miguel, Shandon, and California Valley where daytime highs will be from the mid to upper 90s. There's a chance some of these inland valleys could reach triple-digits this week. This could happen as early as Tuesday.

For the rest of the Central Coast, coastal valleys will be from the low to upper 70s with the potential to reach the 80s through the rest of the week.
The beaches could experience warming by Friday as daytime highs are expected to climb to the low 70s.

The wind forecast will be mild to moderate with winds shifting out of the north and southwest. The breezy locations will be across the inland valleys, where winds could gust from 20 to 30 miles per hour Monday afternoon through the early evening.
