At 99 degrees, San Luis Obispo set a heat record Monday, breaking the previous record of 94 degrees in 1983, according to PG&E meteorologist John Lindsey.
Paso Robles reached 105, short one degree from the record set in 2003, he said.
But relief is in sight.
“We’re looking for cooler weather to develop Tuesday, especially this coming weekend,” Lindsey said. A low pressure system is expected to develop along the Central Coast, bringing with it temperatures Saturday and Sunday in the mid-to-high 70s in San Luis Obispo and coastal areas and the high 80s and low 90s in the Paso Robles area.
