We'll start August on the same note we ended July with; monsoon storms, high humidity levels, and warm temperatures. The good news is we'll have a stint of relief mid-week.
The NWS has issued a flood watch for the mountains and deserts in place until 10P this evening. Isolated thunderstorms could lead to gusty winds, hail, and downpours which could result in localized flooding.
Meanwhile, a beach hazard statement remains in place for our coastal communities until Wednesday at 5P. High surf anywhere from 5-7' with strong rip currents will be in effect.
Monsoonal flow weakens tomorrow resulting in lower humidity levels, but daytime highs remain warm and above average.
Marine layer clouds will impact the coast and some inland areas each night and morning clearing by mid to late morning.
As we track the monsoon into the weekend, stay with the Pinpoint Weather Team for updates on how far west the surge will move.
