Fewer clouds tonight but patchy fog will be possible near the coast and western valleys early tomorrow morning.
A ridge of high pressure started building across the area today, and it will remain in place through Thursday. Temperatures will continue heating up, and the marine layer will become shallower away from the coast.
The hottest areas in the county include our foothills and deserts. Deserts will be feeling the heat with temperatures hovering around 105 degrees Wednesday through Friday.
High pressure will drift east, as an upper level system passes to our north this weekend. The shift will lead to gusty winds over the mountains and deserts Thursday through Sunday. Westerly gusts will range from 25 to 45mph, and isolated gusts up to 55mph.
The marine layer will deepen Friday through Sunday, that means slower and partial clearing of the marine layer for the coast. It gets better on Memorial Day, as the marine layer clear quicker with temperatures in the mid-60s to low-70s at the coast and mountains, mid to upper 70s inland with low 100s in the deserts.
