While heat will remain through the next few days, the worst of it is now over.
A Heat Advisory for inland valleys has expired, but continues for the mountains through 8 p.m. Monday. The Beach Hazard Statement continues through Monday as well. This has been issued for beaches all the way from Los Angeles to Orange County and down to San Diego. In San Diego County, the surf will range from 3-4 feet and there is potential for strong rip currents.
Heading into mid-week, the monsoon returns. Thunderstorm chances will be present from about Wednesday through Friday, lingering into Saturday morning. These storms will favor the mountains and deserts, but could seep into the valleys.
