Humid air inhibits nighttime cooling

Posted at 3:43 AM, Jul 09, 2018

Warm conditions continue Monday on the Central Coast. The air is a little more humid than usual and this inhibits nighttime cooling. It would probably be an even warmer day except for the fact that a large amount of mid and high-level clouds are moving in from the east. 

It will be a partly cloudy day Monday, with cloud coverage increasing later in the week by Wednesday.

Elevated fire danger will continue to be a threat in inland locations where some triple-digit temperatures land. 

Some onshore flow will bring cooler temperatures to the beach Monday into Tuesday with daytime highs reaching the mid to high-70s. Temperatures reach the high 80’s in coastal valleys and triple digits continue inland.

There is a slight chance of thunderstorms through the L.A. County and northern Ventura Mountains Monday-Tuesday.
