The story this afternoon will again be breezy NW winds up to 25mph drawing in marine cooled air, but it'll likely be the last day of free air conditioning for a while as offshore winds develop. Wednesday we get a little offshore flow early but a stronger push Thursday through Sunday. During that period NE morning winds will be about 15-25mph with light afternoon onshore flow allow temps at the beaches to hit the 80s, coastal valleys 90s and inland temps to near or top 100. Those NE winds will clear out the skies and dry out the air and fire weather concerns are high. Saturday some of the beaches will see relief as onshore winds redevelop and marine clouds return however away from the beaches the above average temps continue, Sunday the cooler air gets into the coastal valleys and early next week the cooler air finally gets inland. I think temps will be near seasonal averages for the balance of next week. In the ‘signs of hope' department, yesterday's El Nino update was looking a little more positive and models are hinting mid-month we could see a better pattern which could bring some rain back into the region. Badly needed after a hot streak like the one in this forecast.

Interesting start to the work-week, clearing at the beaches but interior clouds a sign of more fall-like conditions. However it'll transition back to feeling more like summer as an upper level low moves out to be replaced by an area of high pressure warming us up and keeping things generally... Read Story ›

It is still keeping our temperatures slightly cooler than normal for this time of year. But by Tuesday we should be back to normal for temperatures. Then a significant... Read Story ›
