Local Forecast

Inland Heat, Coastal Clouds

Summer-like weather will continue into the workweek. High pressure over the Pacific will keep a hot, dry air-mass stationed over the West Coast. Significant inland heating will draw cooler air in from the ocean, keeping the air conditioning on for coastal areas and low clouds in the forecast. Some warming expected late in the week as high pressure strengthens.


Overnight: Low clouds fill the coast and major inland valleys. Patchy fog possible in the coastal hills. A few spritzes of drizzle possible as well. Expect lows in the low 50s on the coast, mid 40s to low 50s for inland valleys and mid 50s to 60ºF up in the hills.

Monday: Mostly cloudy on the coast with low clouds lingering in a patchy sense during the afternoon. After morning valley clouds, inland areas will clear out and heat up once again. Expect coastal highs in the 60s to around 70ºF with mid 70s to mid 90s inland. Breezy for inland valleys in the afternoon.

Extended: Not much change in the forecast for most of next week. Expect low clouds near the coast with seasonable temperatures and mostly sunny skies inland with warm to hot temps. We’ll see some high clouds move through Tuesday/Wednesday. Further warming possible late in the week.
