Temperatures have dropped about 5 degrees around the county, but greater cooling is expected for the rest of the week.
It will be cooler, and drier, with gusty winds targeting the mountains and deserts. Onshore westerly winds could range between 20 to 30mph, humidity levels will drop to 25 to 35% leading to elevated fire danger. The driest day will be Tuesday, then moisture will gradually go up but fire danger may still be a concern.
The marine layer will spread farther inland each morning this week clearing out to sunny skies. If headed to the beaches be prepared for elevated surf with waves of 3 to 6 feet and strong rip currents. A Beach Hazard Statement will be in effect through 9pm Wednesday.
Temperatures will drop below average by Wednesday, in most of the county with cooler weather through early next week.
Fall is right around the corner with the Autumnal Equinox happening at 12:21pm on September 22nd.
