Above average temperatures are likely this week. As a ridge of high pressure will build however, moderate to strong onshore flow is expected to remain. Due to this the marine layer will impact the coastal areas, prompting slow clearing each afternoon along some beaches. Gusty southwest winds will also impact the region, combined with warm temperatures and dry conditions.
Overall low clouds and fog will keep the coastline pleasant through out the week. Onshore flow will battle against the ridge of high pressure, with valleys likely to observe the hottest temperatures and strongest winds. This pattern will bring minor day to day changes. This week coastal areas are likely to warm in the upper 60s to low 70s. While valleys will remain above average, as temperatures reach the low to mid 90s. Valleys are looking to warm 6 to 12 degrees above average through Thursday.
Onshore gradients will prompt breezy to gusty southwesterly winds across interior sections each afternoon. Overall winds are expected to remain sub-advisory but caution is warranted due to dry fuels and warm conditions.
High pressure will weaken by the end of week, allowing onshore flow to deepen and strengthen through the weekend. This will bring a deeper marine layer, slower clearing and cooling across all areas.
