Record breaking temperatures

High pressure will bring offshore winds and unseasonably warm conditions through the weekend. Record high daytime temperatures were set today in San Luis Obispo, Santa Maria and Santa Barbara. Today's daytime high temperature in San Luis Obispo was 88 degrees, breaking the 1951 record of 86 degrees. Today's daytime high temperature in Santa Maria was 86 degrees, breaking the 1939 record of 84 degrees. Today's daytime high temperature in Santa Barbara was 85 degrees, breaking the 1964 record of 84 degrees. Skies will be clear and gusty winds will weaken. Sunday's weather will mimic that of Saturday. Low pressure will move in Monday for a cooling trend in all areas as onshore flow increases, especially west of the mountains, by Wednesday. Daytime high temperatures are expected to drop to near normal, in the mid-60's, by Thursday and Friday. Night and morning low clouds and fog will become more widespread west of the mountains Wednesday night through Friday. Dry conditions are expected to persist. A warm and drying trend will bring lower humidity levels in the single digits, teens and possibly into the 20's. Winds are expected to decrease into Sunday and overnight humidity recovery is expected to be poor. Brief periods of critical fire weather is possible today and Sunday.
