Saturday Evening Forecast May 23rd.

Another fantastic day with warm inland temperatures and cool to mild reading along the coast. It's a little breezy with some gusty winds here and there, but watches or advisories are posted at this time. Sunday is looking great with just some patchy coastal fog expected once again. Temperatures will repeat for much of the coastline where the fog lingers in to the late morning. However, we do expect to see noticeable warming for inland areas as Spring heat wave takes shape.

Looking ahead, this is the season of changes and several areas of storminess continue to push inland to our north. These areas of low pressure are quickly followed by building pressure, offshore winds and then, a warm up. That's exactly what's in store starting by Memorial Day Monday. Strong high pressure will build right over the West Coast, shunting the normal movement of cool ocean air. Inland areas will warm significantly from Monday through at least Wednesday and Thursday. We could even see a record or two fall by Wednesday as triple digits possibly are surpassed for our warmest locations. The tricky part will be the immediate coastline and the sea breeze/marine layer. As is very typical with Spring and Summer heat events, a chilly ocean is always the wild card. If there is just enough sea breeze, the immediate coast could be much cooler than just a few miles inland. Either way, we do expect very warm conditions and the beaches will likely be very popular regardless if the marine layer shows up or not. Cooler weather widespread is expected to gradually return by late in the work week and in to next weekend.
