From record heat to much cooler weather this weekend. Most areas will average close to normal or slightly below average through Monday.

The weekend will start out with patchy low clouds and areas of fog extending from the coast to our valleys. The sky will open quicker inland, but the clearing process will be slower lasting to late morning near the coast.

The quiet patter with cooler weather won't last long, we expect temperatures to heat back up as another ridge of high pressure develops next week. The ridge will drive the monsoon flow into our areas, with possibility for unsettled conditions starting on Tuesday. Isolated showers and thunderstorms could develop, most likely in the mountains and deserts on Tuesday. The chances do look better for the end of the week on Thursday and Friday. Remember monsoonal thunderstorms can produce heavy rain, so stay tune to the forecast.

Temperatures start to warm back up by middle of next week with 90s returning to some inland areas, along with humidity. It will feel tropical again, pretty much how it's been all summer. So, enjoy the weekend, before it gets muggy outside.

Saturday's Highs:
Coast: 70-75°
Inland: 80-92°
Mountains: 88-98°
Deserts: 108-113°
