Santa Ana winds will peak Thursday morning with gusts of up to 35 to 40 mph.
The offshore wind patter will keep temperatures above average with daytime highs near 80 along the coast, and close to 90 degrees inland and over the foothills. The mountains will average close to 70 degrees. Thursday will be the warmest day of the week, with temperatures averaging 5 to 10 degrees above normal.
The winds will shift onshore on Friday. As a result, the marine layer will be back with low clouds and fog. The marine layer will deepen on Sunday and Monday with low visibility possible, and low clouds moving farther east into the valleys.
Temperatures will continue to cool down, becoming more comfortable for trick-or-treaters this Halloween weekend.
Cooler weather with patchy low clouds will continue through Monday before temperatures will gradually start to warm back up by the middle of next week.
