Triple-digit heat on tap for inland valleys Wednesday

Posted at 5:04 AM, Jun 10, 2020

Temperatures will continue to be hot Wednesday as high pressure builds over the state.

While no heat advisories are in place, the inland valley communities will certainly be warm Wednesday. San Miguel is expected to reach 102 degrees and most other cities in the inland valleys will stay close to the mid to upper 90s. Coastal valley locations won't be too far behind with peak daytime highs in the 80s and 90s. Santa Maria could break a record if the city reaches 90 degrees. The record currently stands at 88 degrees, which was set back in 1979. Sometimes the coast can be a great place to head to to beat the heat, but that won't be the case Wednesday. Most coastal regions will have daytime highs from the upper 70s to the mid-80s. Winds will continue to taper off Wednesday and be closer to 15 miles per hour at their peak.

Thursday will be another warm day for the inland valley communities, but other parts of the Central Coast will start to cool down. By Friday, the inland valley communities will receive some relief from the heat as daytime highs mostly return to the 70s and 80s, which will continue through the end of the weekend.
