Following several mild to warm days for both coastal and inland areas, another heat wave is on deck for this weekend. Daytime temperatures began to warm up Friday, with the hottest conditions expected on Sunday. Above normal temperatures are expected until Monday, as this heat wave will only last a couple days.
A Heat Advisory has been issued ahead of the mini heat wave, which will be in effect from 8am Saturday until 8pm Sunday. This is for the valleys and mountains of San Luis Obispo County, Santa Barbara County, and Ventura County. Temperatures up to 107 degrees are expected, which means there's an elevated risk of heat related illnesses and fire danger at this time.
The gusty Sundowner winds are blowing at advisory levels yet again along Santa Barbara County's Southwestern Coast. The Wind Advisory has been extended and will expire at 3am Saturday morning. Wind speeds between 20-30 mph are expected, with isolated gusts up to 50 mph.
Temperatures will cool right back down by Tuesday, meaning there is relief from the very hot inland conditions just days away.
