Yesterday and again today afternoon and early evening winds are continuing to make some local fire fighting efforts more challenging. There are some differences between yesterday and today: winds are not quite as high and temperatures are lower.

Yesterday a cold front moved through the area in the late afternoon promoting the higher winds, today high pressure is building in and that pressure transition is also driving more locally breezy to windy conditions though no advisories are in place for wind.

Temps will be mild over the next few days. Ultimately much cooler at the beaches and near coastal valleys Thursday when some June Gloom looks to develop there. Inland temps will run generally above average all week.

The big forecast challenge will be the amount of marine layer day to day, so I expect the details will change a bit forecast to forecast thru this period as marine layer depth can be fickle but the general range should be good: near to below average at beaches when the clouds set up, near average at the coastal valleys and slightly above inland.
