Sunday’s high temperature of 104 degrees at Cal Poly broke the 1978 record of 102 degrees, according to local forecaster John Lindsey.
But that was the only record broken in San Luis Obispo County on Sunday despite the continuing heat added Lindsey, a communications specialist at Pacific Gas and Electric Co.
Paso Robles topped at 104 degrees, he said. The record of 107 degrees for that day was set last year, according to the National Weather Service.
The PG&E Energy Education Center in the Avila Valley reached 107 degrees, while Diablo Canyon only hit a high of 64 degrees, Lindsey noted in his daily forecast.
Expect today’s highs to reach the mid-to-high 80s along northwesterly facing beaches such as Los Osos, Morro Bay and Cambria to the high 80s and low 90s along southwestery facing beaches such as Avila Beach and Cayucos.
Temperatures in the San Luis Obispo area and North County could reach the low-to-mid 100s, Lindsey said.
Expect some cooling Tuesday and into Wednesday, he added.
