Another day with morning clouds and clear back to the beaches and only partial clearing there. Tonight clouds push back into the coastal valleys and will be around again Thursday morning but clearing Thursday afternoon looks to be much greater. This is part of a transition to warmer coastal temps Friday and Saturday as a large upper level ridge backs into the area. The larger warm-up will take place inland where 100+ temps return.

The upper level ridge will drive high pressure at the surface Friday afternoon through Monday resulting in breezy to windy northwesterly winds along the coastline, more sunshine along the shoreline. While inland temps bake the coastal valleys will reach the 80s and potentially the 90s while beaches should spike Friday and Saturday in the 70s and potentially 80s before temps step back.

An upper-level low-pressure system will develop along California coastline next week and should bring decreasing winds, a deeper marine layer with night and morning drizzle and fog and much cooler inland and coastal valleys temperatures.
