High pressure is building over the Central Coast and offshore winds will develop. Those winds up to 20mph in the night and morning hours negate the cooling influence marine air which is why our environment is generally so mild.
The air will be dry, it will also sink and compress under the high pressure which results in additional heating. Fire danger will be high this week under clear skies.
It is not a long heat wave, we'll be warm to hot Tuesday through Thursday with some cooling Friday, the weekend temperatures look to return to roughly normal (maybe a couple degrees above normal). We'll see the return of the night and morning marine clouds over the weekend.
Highs will be in the 80s at the beaches through Thursday with 90s in the coastal valleys and triple digits in the interior valleys. 60s and 70s return for the weekend near the coast.
