Temperatures jump another 5 to 10 degrees today with highs trending 5 to 15 degrees above average. We'll see near-record high temperatures in the days ahead, with the hottest day at the coast tomorrow.
Santa Ana winds continue into tomorrow, expect northeasterly gusts of 25 to 50mph inland to the mountains. Occasionally breezy winds could make it to the coast averaging 15-25mph. At this point a Wind Advisory is in effect for the inland and mountain areas until 2pm Wednesday.
The coast will see minor cooling on Thursday, with a weak onshore flow. The marine layer will return this weekend with patchy fog developing near the coast Friday night and again throughout the weekend.
Above normal temperatures will last through Saturday for inland communities all the way back to the deserts. Significant cooling begins Sunday as a storm system approaches bringing more clouds and possible rain Monday and Tuesday.
There remains some uncertainty on the track and timing of the storm but it does look like it could be a significant rainstorm, which would be beneficial as our rainy season is coming to an end and we are still well below average for the water year with a deficit of -2.87".
