Close but not quite.
Temperatures in Paso Robles on Thursday topped out at 110 degrees, one degree shy of the record of 111 set for the city in 1996, said John Lindsey, meteorologist with PG&E.
Paso Robles will have another chance to set a record today. Inland temperatures are expected to be hot again. Paso Robles’ record hot temperature for this date was also 111, in 1996.
The weather will begin to change over the weekend, Lindsey forecasted.
A break in the very hot weather is expected Monday. Normal temperatures in the 90s in North County and low 80s in San Luis Obispo are forecast for next week.
