High temperatures are set to soar again Tuesday inland and in fact there won't be much to stop them from staying up into the middle of next week.
The reason for the scorching sunshine is the ridge of high pressure that is nudging westward, this is the same upper atmospheric flow pattern which has caused amazing heat and drought across the plains this summer.
The airmass developing over our interior and mountains will also be very dry, and with hot/dry air the fire risk will be high.
Coastal valleys will also warm into the upper 70s and 80s (with 90 degree potential) daily. Afternoon winds will be onshore up to 20mph and that'll keep some control of temps near the coast. Some night and morning clouds are likely the closer to the beaches you get. However beaches will still generally see 70s through the period with the marine layer compressed under 800 to 1000ft.
We'll have to watch for signs of the summer monsoon sneaking in, but not until this time next week.
