Another warm day Tuesday and discussion of rain possibilities

by Dave Hovde, KSBY Meteorologist

A ridge of high pressure causing the baking heat is starting to shift to more southwesterly flow at the mid and upper levels.

That’ll have a few impacts: it’ll cool slightly but also allow subtropical moisture to sneak into the Central Coast in the form of higher humidity and upper level clouds.

Thursday and Friday there may be a small chance of a few showers and thunderstorms but generally I think the leftovers from Odile are a miss for us. There is also a frontal system passing to our north on Wednesday into Thursday that’ll push rain into Monterey county but probably not here.

Otherwise, night and morning low clouds and fog and increasing northwesterly winds are expected.

Weather warms again Sunday into next week.

Hot weather continues inland, but relief is on its way by the weekend

By Dan Shadwell

High pressure holds in place today, with more temperatures topping 100-degrees inland. Along the coast, we’ll see pretty typical temperature ranges along San Luis Obispo County beaches, though still somewhat above normal.

By mid-week, the temps will begin to drop and by next weekend, inland areas will see the mercury topping out a good 10-degrees cooler than what we’ll see today.

Here’s a look at today’s high temps:
Paso Robles–101
Cambria–67
Atascadero–99
Morro Bay–66
San Luis Obispo–84
Pismo Beach–69
Guadalupe–69
Nipomo–76
Santa Maria–82
Los Alamos–92
Solvang–96
Vandenberg–78
Goleta–84
Santa Barbara–90

Few more days of extreme heat, then a cooling trend on the way

By RaeAnn Christensen, KSBY Forecaster

High pressure continues to bring hot and above normal temperatures for inland areas through Tuesday. Due to those hot temperatures, wind and low humidity a Red Flag Warning is still in effect for Santa Barbara County until 9pm Tuesday. Winds could gust up to 20 mph. Critical fire weather conditions along with the very dry fuels could create extreme fire danger and/or behavior. Patchy dense fog will still be plaguing the coastal and beach areas overnight into the morning. But temperatures will remain cool along the coast. Thanks to remnants of Hurricane Odile there will be a cooling trend for inland areas with increased clouds for all areas. This is expected to happen Wednesday through the end of the week.

Extreme heat continues inland, cooling trend late next week

By RaeAnn Christensen, KSBY Forecaster

A strong ridge of high pressure will continue to bring hot and dry conditions through Tuesday for inland areas. Above normal temperatures are expected into early next week. Those hot temperatures, wind and low humidity are prompting a red flag warning for Santa Barbara County. It’s in effect until 6am Monday morning. Winds could gust up to 20 mph. Critical fire weather conditions along with the very dry fuels could create extreme fire danger and/or behavior. Coastal areas will remain cooler but patchy dense fog will come into play overnight into the morning. A cooling trend is expected with increasing clouds for late next week as the remnants of Hurricane Odile move over the region.

Weekend forecast: heat wave inland, cool on the coast

By RaeAnn Christensen, KSBY Forecaster

High pressure along with offshore flow will dominate our weather through early next week with well above normal temperatures. The high temperatures will peak Saturday and Sunday with triple digits for inland areas, 70s and 80s for the beach areas, and 60s to 70s for coastal regions. We will see some pretty dense fog and low clouds for the coast and beach areas overnight into the morning time. A tropical system from the south will approach by midweek bringing just clouds for the Central Coast, doesn’t look like right now any precipitation.

High pressure holds into the weekend, with Sunday likely to be warmest of the next five days

By Dan Shadwell
Good morning! The ridge of high pressure that’s moved over the Central and South Coasts, will hold fast into at least the early part of next week, keeping the inland areas downright hot! We’ll see the mercury climb well over 100-degrees in Paso Robles for the next several days.

Along the beaches, the marine layer north of Point Conception will remain somewhat stubborn, but should push away from the coast by mid-day, only to return again in the evening hours.

Likewise, we will see locally dense fog in many of the beach areas breaking up by mid-morning.

Coastal temperatures in northern San Luis Obispo County will likely remain in the 60′s and 70′s, but could tick upward over predicted highs, if the offshore flow strengthens.

Overnight, it’ll be warm, though the air mass should be relatively dry.

By mid-week next week, a trough of low pressure will arrive, along with moisture from the south, just to make things interesting.

Here’s a look at today’s high temperatures:
Paso Robles–104
Cambria–65
Atascadero–98
Morro Bay–64
San Luis Obispo–84
Pismo Beach–66
Nipomo–74
Guadalupe–68
Santa Maria–79
Los Alamos–87
Solvang–94
Vandenberg–77
Goleta–83
Santa Barbara–89
