WEATHER STORY
Shower chances continue overnight as monsoon moisture streams in from the southeast. There is also a slight chance of embedded thunderstorms. Dryer, southerly flow will begin on Tuesday, bringing warmer, sunnier weather for the entire viewing area. Then, we’ll begin the transition back to the “normal summer” pattern we’ve been experiencing for the past few weeks. You know, the one where it’s kind of cloudy and cool on the coast and warm inland with valley winds. Yes, that one. It’s coming back. Maximum stokeage.

Overnight:
 A chance of showers with embedded, isolated thundershowers. Then, decreasing clouds. Expect lows in the 50s for most areas.  

Tuesday: Becoming mostly sunny and warmer with coastal highs in the upper 60s to 70s and 80s to low 100s inland. Winds pick up for inland valleys in the afternoon.

Wednesday: Slightly cooler and cloudier on the coast with highs in the 60s to mid 70s, but continued sunny & warm inland with highs in the 80s to low 100s. Winds pick up for inland valleys in the afternoon.
 
Extended: It’ll be a slow return to business as usual for the remainder of the week with temperatures cooling especially on the coast with an increase in low clouds.
