High pressure from the desert southwest that brought another period of hot weather in the interior, contrasted with cool and foggy conditions at the coast, on Tuesday will continue into Friday.
But temperatures reaching to about 100 degrees at midweek in the Santa Ynez Valley should begin to cool for the upcoming weekend as the high-pressure area moves eastward again.

Pacific Ocean waters along the coast will riange between 51 and 54 degree through Friday.
Wednesday’s 3- to 5-foot northwesterly deep-water sea and swell, with a 5- to 9-second period, is expected to decrease to 3 to 5 feet with the same period into Thursday.
But an increasing hurricane swell from the south could arrive along our coastline this weekend.
Your Weekly PG&E Safety Tip
When summer heat drives families to swimming pools, lakes and the ocean, it’s important to actively supervise children in and around water. Give them your undivided attention. Appoint a designated “water watcher” and take turns with other adults in that duty.
Teach children that swimming in open water is not the same as swimming in a pool. Make sure they are aware of uneven bottom surfaces, river currents, ocean undertows and changing weather.
