Steady onshore winds and sea layer made for another perfect day. We expect more of the same as we start heading into the second half of August. Look for more fog overnight and into early Monday. Lows will be mostly in the 50s and 60s. Scattered fog in the morning for the coast should give way to mostly sunny skies in the afternoon. Highs will be in the 60s and 70s for the coast with very hot and even hot temperatures further inland. An excessive heat watch is in effect for areas just to the east. If these watches become active in our indoor areas, we will let you know.
Looking ahead, the broad area of high pressure to the east, which dictates our summer weather pattern, is building to the west. This means that the earth flow will weaken towards the middle of the week and allow our inner areas to continue to be on the warm side! The coast will continue to experience very mild to warm weather with the usual pattern of scattered fog late at night and early in the morning. Weakening high pressure near next Friday will lead to stronger overland flow and much needed heat relief for our inland areas. Monsoon moisture will continue to stay mostly well to the east. However, this may change with the threat varying from day to day, which means we will be watching it closely!
