I wish I could say the upcoming forecast was exciting in some way, but under control of a larger ridge of high pressure the weather looks to be quite mild for the next week.
In terms of the details night and morning marine clouds near the coast with clearing should be the order of each day with inland conditions clear.
The current position of the ridge of high pressure keeps the monsoon humidity and shower chances out of the way.
If there is a trend, it'll be for warmer temps inland with upper 90s and a few 100 degree days over the next 4 days. At the coast valleys mid 70s to low 80s with most beaches in the mid to upper 60s with the early clouds and clearing pattern. Each day will also see afternoon onshore winds develop to 20mph.
The only real change comes Sunday and Monday when the upper ridge collapses and a trough drops into CA from the north, this will lift the inversion layer and allow cooler air to drop into the interior valleys and high go from near 100 (above average) into the mid to upper 80s which will be below average. That cooldown doesn't last long though as more ridging develops quickly and by Wednesday inland temps return to the 90s. The Sunday-Monday cooldown will drop coastal valleys into the lower to mid 70s and beaches into the lower to mid 60s with increased onshore flow.
