The official start to summer means close to triple digits for certain areas

Posted at 5:31 AM, Jun 21, 2018

Summer solstice is here, which means more than 14 hours of daylight and warm temperatures. The inland valleys, although still very warm, will range from the mid-90s to the low 100s. Coastal valleys will be in the 70s and 80s and the beaches will be in the low 60s to low 70s.

Marine influence continues to be a factor but will burn off by mid-morning and bring clear skies to the area by the afternoon. Winds look to be fairly calm throughout the morning hours but will increase in the afternoon around 2:00 p.m. and range from about 20-30 miles per hour before decreasing Thursday night.

Warmer temperatures will continue through the weekend for the inland valleys, but daytime highs will dip back into the 90s as a ridge of high pressure flattens over the west coast.
