High temps took their expected jump today behind some morning offshore flow, more of this is expected to close the week. Another offshore push gtes going over the weekend pushing the temps up a little more.
The offshore winds are not particularly strong but strong enough to keep marine influence limited. Those offshore winds will turn onshore again each afternoon over the next several days. This push and pull of the winds have kept the nights cool to cold and the afternoon conditions mild to warm.
We'll see a trough pass to our north Friday which will mean more strengthening of high pressure reinforcing offshore morning winds over the weekend. This will drive temps in the the 80s and lower 90s for coastal and interior valleys which even the beaches should be in the 70s.
To me it looks like offshore winds will be a factor next week as well, the question is how strong will they be. We have not seen rain in a long time so warm temps and dry offshore winds will have to be watched for fire conditions.
