Higher pressure will produce higher temperatures this weekend

The low pressure which has been lingering over the area since the weekend finally starts to pull further east on Friday. This will allow higher pressure to settle in over the area and afternoon temperatures immediately begin to jump.

Changes on Friday will be muted due to marine clouds early but by Saturday skies are mostly clear and the afternoon temps will be above normal as a ridge builds over the region.

Sunday the high pressure is firmly in place. Temperatures continue to get warmer on Sunday and Monday and may stay elevated through Tuesday as well.

For today 60s for the beaches, 70s in the coastal valleys and upper 70s and low 80s for the interior. Friday temps increase a few more degrees. But by Sunday 70s at the beaches with upper 70s and low 80s in the coastal valleys with mid to upper 90s in the interior valleys.

A low pressure system moves onshore mid week but will stay north of the area. it is possible that a trough from the system will swing over southern California and even possible that a cut off low will develop which may bring another chance of precipitation. But it is the more likely that this feature will help to cool temperatures and bring on a return to the marine layer.
