Hot temperatures will continue through Thursday before a significant cooling trend arrives for the weekend with increasing low clouds and fog for coastal areas and possibly a few coastal valleys.
Monday was hot and windy with wind advisories and red flag warnings. By evening these had expired and winds calmed down considerably.
Tuesday winds will weaken but high temperatures will increase. Coastal areas will be in the 80s to low 90s, and valleys will be into the mid 90s. The drastically above average temperatures along the Ventura County coastline have prompted a heat advisory for that area to remain in effect through Tuesday evening.
Offshore flow will be weakening Wednesday which will help bring in an earlier sea breeze. Coastal areas will see most of the cooling but highs will remain 10-15 degrees above normal.
We will keep the sunshine and warm temperatures through Thursday. A trough approaching from the west Thursday will increase onshore flow. It will remain very warm but likely around 5 degrees cooler than Wednesday.
This weekend we will see cooler temperatures but most if not all cities will stay above average for this time of year.
