The ridge of high pressure that has been bringing the heat for the inland valleys is starting to shift eastward Tuesday. As a result, daytime highs for the inland valley areas will start to cool down by a few degrees and be close to the low to mid-90s through at least the end of the week.

The sky conditions will be very similar to Monday. Expect mid to high-level stratus clouds from the coast to the inland valleys for most of the afternoon. Fog and marine layer will hug the coast and fill in over the coastal valleys through the morning commute but should start to burn off by late morning and linger at the coast through the early afternoon. With that being said. expect foggy conditions during the morning commute with the possibility of drizzle in coastal regions like Guadalupe. By the afternoon, the coastal valleys will have temperatures from the low to upper 70s, and the beaches will be right around the mid to upper 60s.

The wind forecast looks to be fairly mild for most of the day. Northwesterly winds are expected to pick up in some of our inland valley areas, like Paso Robles and Santa Ynez, and reach close to 25 miles per hour. Otherwise, most of our coastal regions will have winds breezy conditions closer to 15 mph.
