Friday morning forecast October 2

Strong high pressure and light offshore flow are keeping temperatures hot, especially inland. Some inland areas are expected to remain in the low triple digits. Coastal temperatures will stay mainly in the 80s to 90s.

The heat advisory is in effect in Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo and Ventura Counties through Friday at 8:00 pm. A red flag warning is lifted, but there is still fire risk with hot and dry conditions, plus warm overnight lows.

Additionally, there is an air quality advisory listed in San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara Counties, through Sunday at 11:00 am. Wildfire smoke is making for hazy conditions.

The ridge will move south and weaken Saturday and onshore flow will increase, bringing in a nice cool sea breeze. This will cool temperatures by a few degrees everywhere. Temperatures will still remain 5-15 degrees above normal through the weekend.

Into next week, moderate onshore flow returns, bringing the marine layer with it. Expect to see 4 to 8 degrees more cooling Monday, with temperatures not changing much during the week.

Long term, there is a very slight chance of rain next weekend on the Central Coast.
