Temperatures Tuesday hit the 70s and some low 80s while inland temps soared into the upper 80s and lower 90s.
This is due to the axis of a ridge in the upper atmosphere moving over the area today. As expected there was just enough marine presence to keep coastal temperatures in some check.
The marine layer will make a larger return to the beaches and near coastal valleys Wednesday and cool temps a little.
To me it looks like Thursday temps jump a little before a trough approaches again bringing temps down Friday through Sunday behind stronger NW winds.
Later Saturday into Sunday a front passes over the area but won't produce rain, rather reinfornce strong NW winds. Sunday could be the coolest day of the forecast. After Sunday a ridge likely pumps up again pushing temps in the the upper 70s and lower 80s early next week (above average again).
