Possible tropical moisture in the forecast, Aug 7th


Another very hot day inland with many areas seeing triple digits once again. Heat alerts should expire by late Sunday evening for all areas as cooler temperatures begin to return. Patchy fog is expected along the coast with perhaps a little deeper and more widespread coverage as the onshore flow ramps up.  Overnight lows will be mostly in the 50's and 60's. Monday morning fog will be widespread for all coastal areas with partial clearing expected by the afternoon. Highs will be in the 70's near the coast with 80's and 90's farther inland.

Looking ahead, high pressure to our east will weaken and drift farther east starting on Monday. This will open the door to a stronger onshore flow and much appreciated cooling for inland areas. By Tuesday and Wednesday, all inland areas should see high back in the normal range of 80's and 90's. Now comes the fun part of next week's forecast and that is Tropical Storm Eugene. Right now the storm is just south of the tip of Baja and is expected to slowly move up toward Southern California. This will need to be watched closely as we should see at least a healthy dose of tropical moisture move our way. For now, we will keep any predictions for rain or thunder on the back burner and just look forward to a mostly quiet week ahead. But, while tropical weather is pretty rare in part of the world, it's not out of the question and we will be vigilant with our radars. If the need to add rain or thunder becomes relevant, we will update quickly, so stay tuned!
