Warm Santa Ana winds will continue through Wednesday.
Wind Advisory will be in effect until Tuesday at 4pm for our valleys. The winds will impact inland communities as well as our mountains, with easterly winds gusting between 20-30 mph but gusting up to 50 mph. The winds will peak on Tuesday, with more localized Santa Ana winds on Wednesday.
Temperatures west of the mountains will trend 5-10° above average with areas averaging in the low 80s in our inland communities on Tuesday. The warm breeze will make it to the coast with areas averaging in the mid 70s. The nights will be warmer too with most places only dropping to mid 40s and low 50s.
High surf and strong rip currents are expected Tuesday afternoon, withHigh Surf Advisory starting at 9pm Tuesday until 1am Friday morning.
A storm to our south and ridge to the north will help to usher in easterly winds, but that same storm to our south will begin tracking north later this week. It will potentially trigger some showers with the best chance on Thursday and Friday. Expect to see more clouds, cooler temperatures, and light rain showers.
The cooler and cloudier trend will stay here this weekend, but temperatures won't be far from normal. It will be a seasonal weekend with mid to upper 60s this weekend.
