It will be another foggy start to the morning for coastal valleys and beaches in San Luis Obispo and northern Santa Barbara Counties. A dense fog advisory will remain in effect for those areas through 8 a.m. Wednesday. Heading into the late morning, the offshore flow will develop which will help clear out most fog over the coastal regions.

Northwesterly will begin to increase Wednesday, primarily ranging from 10-15 miles per hour, ahead of gustier conditions that are expected Thursday.

The major factor in the forecast, especially through Friday, will be the heat that is developing across the state. A heat advisory will go into effect at 11 a.m. for San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara Counties. Daytime highs across the region will likely stay between the mid-80s to the low 100s and it's likely that daytime highs could heat up even more from there for Thursday.

As a reminder, it's important to acknowledge sensitivities to the heat and stay hydrated throughout the day. For those working outside, limit exposure to sun and take frequent breaks in shaded areas. Don't forget to check on relatives, neighbors, and pets throughout the next three days as hot temperatures remain in the forecast.
