Chilly temperatures will continue into tonight, but it won't be as cold as last night.

The average temperatures at sunrise will be in the 30s and 40s, throughout most of the county, patchy fog will develop too near the coast and western valleys. Patchy frost can be expected well inland. Tuesday will remain cool with daytime highs about 3 to 7 degrees below normal. Onshore flow will help the cool air stick around, but the winds will increase in the mountains and deserts potentially gusting up to 30 mph.

The winds will turn as a ridge of high pressure develops in the upper levels on Wednesday, it will bring more of an easterly and northerly wind making it warmer and drier on Wednesday and Thursday around the county. The biggest difference will be felt in the mountains and deserts with temperatures 5 to 8 degrees above normal, but closer to average along the coast and for inland communities.

The short lived warm up will end on Friday as onshore returns, clouds will build back Friday night into Saturday, with cooler weather for the weekend. Dry weather will continue into early next week.

Tuesday Highs:
Coast: 59-64°
Inland: 61-66°
Mountains: 55-61°
Deserts: 64-69°
