Heat Wave Hits Central, South Coasts


The monster heat wave you’ve been hearing about for the last few days is going to hit full strength Tuesday.

Highs will be in the 90 degree range on the coast, to around 110 inland. The Central Coast will have a little bit of onshore flow, so it will be slightly cooler than the South Coast.

There’s the potential for sundowner winds in Southern Santa Barbara County Tuesday through Thursday.  And, there’s a Red Flag Warning for high fire danger from Tuesday afternoon, until Thursday morning for the Santa Ynez mountains, with the biggest area of concern west of San Marcos Pass. The heat wave is expected to peak Wednesday, with a cooling trend as we move into the weekend.
