UPDATE 11:15 p.m. SUNDAY: Cooling winds swept onto San Luis Obispo County’s beaches and into coastal valleys Sunday, preventing another broken heat record in San Luis Obispo — but North County saw no relief as Paso Robles, at 108 degrees, surpassed a record for the second straight day.

North County highs are expected to remain in the triple digits through Thursday, according to PG&E meteorologist John Lindsay.

The previous record for a June 30 in Paso Robles was 107 degrees, set in 1996. Saturday in Paso Robles saw 111 degrees, which broke a record temperature of 109 degrees set June 29, 1994.

Temperatures on Sunday in San Luis Obispo reached only 90 degrees.

UPDATE 6:20 p.m.: While it was hot in many places in San Luis Obispo, Paso Robles' record-breaking peak temperature was the hottest in the county Saturday.

At 5 p.m. Paso Robles reached 111 degrees, breaking a record set June 29, 1994 when it was 109.

UPDATE 3:05 p.m.: San Luis Obispo smashed a temperature record set June 29, 1996.

According to PG&E meteorologist John Lindsey, on that date the city had an all time high of 90 degrees.

Saturday that record was beat by 12 degrees at 10:56 a.m. when 102 degrees was recorded at the San Luis Obispo County Regional Airport.
