It's going to be another scorcher of a day as temperatures across the Central Coast will reach the the low to upper 90s. A heat advisory will remain in place through 9:00 p.m. for San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara Counties.

During this time, daytime highs from the coast to the inland valleys have the potential to reach at least 90 degrees. Daytime highs for the beaches will range from the 70s all the way to the low 90s, while the coastal and inland valley communities will range from the 80s to the upper 90s.

It will also be a breezy afternoon. North to northwesterly winds will range from 10-25 miles per hour with wind gusts peaking in the afternoon. In terms of the south coast, wind conditions will taper off, which means there will be more favorable conditions for fire crews working to contain the Hollister Fire off the coastline of Gaviota.

Looking ahead to Friday and the weekend, daytime highs will start to trend down, although inland valley communities will still be close to the low 90s by Friday. Saturday will bring temperatures in the 70s and 80s with the return of marine later along the coast.
