Tuesday evening forecast June 9th

Hot and dry weather will continue through Wednesday, then increasing seabreezes will start a cooling trend on Thursday for the coastal areas. More cooling pushes into southwest California for the weekend with late night and morning low clouds and fog along the coasts and mostly clear conditions inland.

High temperatures were hot this afternoon, shattering records in several spots including in Camarillo (96) & Oxnard (90) by 14 and 11 degrees.  Santa Barbara's city high daily record was also shattered hitting 98 degrees compared to the previous 91 set back in 1894.

Besides the heat we are also dealing with very dry conditions and humidity falling into the single digits.  Wind is gusty in several locations as well.  This combination creates critical fire weather.

The forecast remains hot through Wednesday. Light offshore breezes will persist through tomorrow morning with overnight temperatures staying near 70 degrees in many foothill communities along with poor overnight humidity recoveries less than 25 percent. The warm nighttime temperatures will get a jump start on the highs for Wednesday with many areas peaking prior to the expected return of southwest seabreeze in the late afternoon.  Temperatures will not be quite as hot as today, but it will still be hot out there with coastal communities having temperatures in the mid to upper 80s, and valleys still in the high 90s to triple digits.  Critical fire weather is not out of the question with these conditions.

Thursday will remain much above normal, but not near record levels as the pressure gradients return to onshore and a stronger seabreeze takes hold. There is even a southerly surge along the Central Coast with some low clouds just offshore and a deepening marine layer by Thursday morning. Interior valleys will remain hot and well into the 90s, but coasts and coastal valleys will mainly be in the 70s and 80s.

By Friday all areas will see continued cooling as a large low pressure trough approaches northern California. interior valleys
