Heat Wave Underway On Central, South Coasts


A heat wave which could lead to near record to record high temperatures for the Central and South Coasts is underway.

It’s not expected to be quite as hot as the heat wave earlier this month, but highs could be in the upper 80’s to low 90’s on the coast. The valleys and foothills could be in the upper 90’s to around 105 degrees.

High pressure is expected to knock out the traditional cooling onshore flow through at least mid-week. The heat wave is expected to be with us until Thursday, with a return to an onshore flow and cooling starting on Friday.

Sundowner winds are in the forecast for Southern Santa Barbara County Monday and Tuesday nights, which will mean an increased brush fire danger.
