thermometer heat advisory hot generic

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. — The first big summer weather heatwave has brought triple-digit temperatures to San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties. The First Alert Weather team is forecasting that trend to continue Wednesday. Paso Robles, Santa Ynez and Ojai are the leaders for each county.

Although the temperatures are staying hot, SoCal Edison has expired their Public Safety Power Shutoff warnings. In a text alert, the utility company wrote, “Due to improved fire weather conditions, the Santa Barbara area, has been removed from the Public Safety Power Shutoff considerations.”

However, firefighters are still on duty in case a wildfire ignites.

Santa Barbara County emergency managers recommend residents signup for Ready SBC to get an emergency update. The updates will let you know if there are evacuation alters from wildfire or other emergencies. To signup go to their website.

Santa Barbara County fire officials recommend people prepare their homes before fire season and make evacuation plans. For more information visit their website.
