Daytime highs are trending 5-10 degrees warmer, but we’ll have a gradual cooldown as we progress through the week.

A few isolated thunderstorms have been reported in our mountains, but activity has significantly weakened.

Tropical Storm Frank, off the coast of Baja California, is helping increase high clouds over the county, and its swell is pumping in wave sets up to 7’ along some of our coastal communities.

The NWS has a Beach Hazard Statement in place until Wednesday at 5P. Strong rip currents over the next couple of days are expected, it’s advised to swim near a lifeguard or only go in the water if you’re an experienced swimmer.

We’ll have a quick break from high humidity levels through Thursday, then another surge of monsoonal moisture filters in. This will increase our dewpoints and usher in another round of isolated thunderstorms Saturday night through early next week.

As we track the monsoon stay with the Pinpoint Weather Team for updates on how far west the surge will move each day.

Wednesday's Highs:
Coast: 76-81°
Inland: 83-94°
Mountains: 87-96°
Deserts: 104-108°
