Indian summer conditions are forecast to continue through Wednesday with cooler temperatures expected for the weekend.
San Luis Obispo reached a high of 91 degrees Monday, said local weather forecaster John Lindsey. San Luis Obispo’s high today is expected to be 94 degrees.
“By the way, the record for this date is 97 degrees set back in 1988,” he said.
Today's high temperatures will be in the high 80s in the North County and the low to mid-90s in the coastal valleys, Lindsey said in his daily forecast.
Maximum temperatures along the beaches will range from the high 80s to the mid-70s. Southwesterly facing beaches in Cayucos, Avila Beach and Shell Beach will reach the high 80s with highs in the low 80s along the westerly facing beaches in Pismo Beach, Grover Beach and Cambria. The northwesterly facing areas in Morro Bay, Los Osos, Montaña de Oro and the Nipomo Mesa will range from the mid- to high 70s.
“The high pressure ridge over California is forecast to transition to a low-pressure trough on Friday,” Lindsey said. “This condition will allow the marine layer to return with night and morning low clouds and fog and cooler temperatures on Thursday through Sunday.”
