Wednesday evening forecast – June 2

High pressure will bring above normal temperatures to inland areas through the week. However, strong onshore flow and persistent low clouds and fog near the coast will keep it much cooler there. Elevated fire weather conditions are likely each afternoon across interior areas. Inland cooling is expected by the weekend.

A tale of two weather scenarios across the area Wednesday and most of the rest of the week as June gloom continues at the coast but it's hot and dry inland, especially far interior areas. This is all due to a ridge of high pressure over the eastern Pacific that extends into the West Coast while a strong onshore flow exists at the surface.

Really not seeing any major changes the next few days, though some cooling is expected for interior areas later in the week into the weekend as the high weakens. Onshore flow will increase and pull that chilly maritime air farther inland each day. In the meantime, look for low clouds to linger near the coast and inland up to a few miles each afternoon, meaning minimal sunshine at the beaches and temperatures mainly in the low to mid 60s. Areas of dense fog are likely during the night and early morning hours, possibly extending into the lower coastal valleys at times. Meanwhile, valley temps will reach the low to mid 90s Thursday before that increasing onshore flow cools things down.

Overall pretty quiet pattern into the middle of next week. Heights do lower some as a trough moves into the Pacific northwest Sunday and Monday. This will continue the slow cooling trend for inland areas with highs falling to the mid 70s to lower 80s for the valleys. June gloom conditions expected to continue for the coast with minimal afternoon clearing and temps in the 60s.
