The heat wave is now ending, with temperatures cooling nicely into Monday. Daytime highs will be right around seasonal average, with some areas even dropping just below average.
The relatively cooler temperatures are short-lived: by Tuesday, east of the coast, highs climb a couple of degrees and that gradual warming trend continues into the end of the work week, with temperatures peaking Thursday. Highs then cool off again, bringing seasonal temperatures by next weekend.
The coast will be the spot to escape the heat, with temperatures sitting in around the lower-70s through the week. The marine layer looks to come and go each night this week.
As the Excessive Heat Warning expires for the deserts Sunday evening, a Wind Advisory begins for the mountains and deserts. That advisory ends at 10 p.m. Monday with gusts up to 50-60 MPH expected.
