A heat advisory is in place into Thursday at 9 p.m. Not only will Thursday's high inland be warm, they could be even warmer than Wednesday (100-109). The overnight lows will also stay in the 60s and low 70s for some. This combination of heat and little overnight recovery can put stress on people. Folks are advised to avoid peak heat and stay hydrated during this kind of weather. Pets, children and the elderly should also be front of mind.
Strong upper level ridging with persist over through Thursday producing another blazing day of temps inland. The upper riding will weaken very slightly later Thursday but by the weekend a trough swings in and inland temps dramatically drop to below average only to rebound to hot conditions inland the middle of next week.
But that is just part of the weather story. At the beaches it is grey and cool. Coastal valley temps are in the middle.
Night through morning low clouds will continue across coastal areas through Friday morning then it will expand into adjacent coastal valleys this weekend. In other words, near the coastal areas these temperature trends are there but dramatically muted.
