The video clip here is a forecast update about the McMillan Fire which is burning in the Shandon area.

Temps dropped inland 10-15 degrees from Tuesday thanks to a ridge of high pressure moving east. That movement allowed onshore winds to prevail. At the beaches there was significant cloud cover early, the coastal valleys cleared this morning but clouds will push back in this evening and the cooling trend continues tomorrow with a deeper marine layer bringing cooler air further inland.

The strong onshore flow will continue to bring cooling to the area through Friday. Highs will cool a few more degrees Thursday and drop to near or slightly below normal by Friday.

Fairly minor day to day changes from Sunday into next week. A little trough comes in Sun/Mon but with minimal impacts. Followed by slightly warmer temps Tuesday and Wednesday from a ridge over the eastern Pacific. A strong onshore flow will continue each day and the marine layer will likely remain in place through the period, pushing into at least the lower coastal valleys each night. Typical June conditions with temps within a few degrees of normal.
