As high pressure and offshore flow dominate the forecast, locals can expect a breezy and hot day.

For the morning commute, expect cooler temperatures for the inland valleys, mostly in the low 40s. For those in the coastal communities, morning temperatures will likely warm up to the 50s as the morning commute starts.

Northeasterly winds will range from five to 20 miles per hour throughout the morning, especially for areas in San Luis Obispo County. A steady breeze should be expected for the afternoon, just as temperatures reach their peak. The afternoon will be warm from the beaches to the valleys. Daytime highs along the coast will reach at least the upper 70s with potential to reach the low 80s. The coastal and inland valleys will be right around the upper 70s to mid-80s range. Even by 6:00 p.m., temperatures will be in the 60s and 70s.

Onshore flow will return Saturday and temperatures will start to trend down and be close to seasonal averages. By Sunday, low pressure will takeover and a chance of rain will be back in the forecast, which could carry over into early Monday morning.
