Hot and dry conditions are expected much of this week. Offshore flow will help to drive temperatures up, with triple digits in the valleys and nineties across some coastal areas Tuesday through at least Thursday. Temperatures will begin to cool by Friday and be close to normal by Sunday.
A very large upper level high is bringing a heat wave to our area. Tuesday we will see warmer weather but do expect a marine layer in the morning along the coast. The area will see the warmest conditions on Wednesday. Weak offshore flow by Wednesday will aid in clearing out the marine layer and giving us more sunshine and very warm to hot temperatures. This will bring highs along the coast into the 80s and 90s with triple digits inland.
A heat advisory is in effect for Ventura County's coast and valleys until Thursday 8PM. Thursday conditions stay very warm. Friday a sea breeze start to return to cool areas right along the coat with the ridge breaking down on the weekend we finally start to get some relief by the weekend.
