Gale force winds, drop in temps this weekend

Gale force winds will impact the waters northwest of the Channel Islands through this evening. A large tidal difference allows for a high rip current risk at beaches through this evening. A trough of low pressure from the northwest will bring an increase in the onshore flow resulting in cooler temperatures and more clouds and a deeper marine layer tonight into Monday. By Sunday morning, temperatures could drop up to 6 degrees and low clouds may push into the valleys. More significant cooling is expected Monday and there will be limited afternoon clearing. This trough is also expected to bring a slight chance of showers and drizzle north of Point Conception Monday and Tuesday and a deeper marine layer. The slight chance of light rain and drizzle is highly unlikely for this time of year. The amount of precipitation is minimal at best. There should be a slight warm up on Tuesday, with earlier clearing of the marine layer. A significant warm up is expected next weekend due to a large ridge of high pressure building overhead. Temperatures may exceed triple digits inland and hit the upper 80's, low 90's by the end of this week.
