The warming continues for a couple more days. Sunday brought highs anywhere between 5 and 10 degrees warmer than Saturday, kicking temperatures up above seasonal average. Some inland areas reached the lower 70s (seasonal average is mid to upper 60s).

That warming will continue into Monday, when most coastal areas look to hit the 70º mark, plus inland areas and deserts hitting the mid 70s. Monday will also bring more cloud coverage, so skies will not be as sunny and clear.

By Tuesday, skies clear and temperatures warm yet again, bringing coastal areas into the mid 70s and inland valleys up to the 80 degree mark. These highs are anywhere from 10-15º warmer than normal for this time of year.

By Wednesday, temperatures start to cool down slowly, taking a larger plunge into Thursday. Slight rain chances kick in Thursday night and into Friday, but this does not look major and any rain will be light and minimal.

Highs stay cool and back closer to seasonal norm into next weekend.

Monday's Highs:
Coast: 69-75°
Inland: 70-75°
Mountains: 55-62°
Deserts: 70-75°
