Watching Inland Heat

Air Quality (as of 6:30PM)
Good for all reporting stations.

The area of low pressure that brought cooler, more humid conditions to the region will fade overnight. Then, a strong ridge of high pressure to our north will begin to exert its influence on our region. The marine layer will be compressed Friday into Saturday with serious heat returning inland by Saturday and likely lasting into early next week. Surface flow will remain onshore, which will keep the air conditioning on at the coast. Inland highs will range from 90-110ºF during the period, however.

 Low clouds fill the coast and inland valleys overnight. Lows in the 50s on the coast with 40s-50s inland.

Friday: Partly cloudy on the coast and sunny inland. Continued cool on the coast with highs in the low 60s to low 70s but warming inland with highs in the mid 70s to mid 90s.

Saturday: Scattered low clouds on the coast but sunny inland. Expect coastal highs in the mid 60s to mid 70s with 90s to 100s inland.
Extended: Low clouds remain on the coast into the weekend with highs in the 60s to low 70s. Inland highs range from 90ºF-110ºF through Tuesday with some cooling by mid-week. High clouds will be on the increase next week with some monsoon moisture in the vicinity.

This week's normal temperatures:

LOW: 52ºF
HIGH: 69ºF
LOW: 50ºF
HIGH: 84ºF
