Dense fog and triple digit temps

We can expect above normal daytime temperatures in most inland regions through the middle of the week due to high pressure building in the southwest. This will also increase afternoon high temperatures tomorrow another 5-10 degrees across the area. However, temperatures will remain below record readings except the valley may flirt with record highs. The biggest issue will be low clouds and fog developing overnight into tomorrow morning, especially along our beach and coastal areas and in Santa Barbara. The marine layer inversion height drops tonight and will strengthen, helping to form dense fog in some areas. It is already moving into Los Angeles. These low clouds and fog should burn off at the beaches tomorrow to continue the warming trend. We can expect fewer dense clouds over Santa Barbara tomorrow compared to today as the moisture decreases and instability increases.

Then, a shift in our weather will occur due to a series of low pressure systems that will move north. This will bring a cooling trend by midweek. Most coastal areas will experience overnight patchy low clouds and fog which can linger through the day.

We can expect similar conditions on Monday with the exception that afternoon high temperatures in some areas may be slightly warmer by a few degrees. Low clouds and fog will be slightly less dense and extensive Sunday night into Monday under a weakening inversion. An onshore flow will cool temperatures Tuesday into Wednesday, especially at the coast. Inland areas will be slightly above normal for max temperatures. The overnight low clouds and fog will be present.
