Warm and dry conditions continue

Posted at 4:25 AM, Apr 23, 2018

After a weekend with plenty of sunshine, the warm conditions will continue on Monday.

Daytime highs at the beaches will be slightly cooler, but still seasonal, with highs in the upper 60s to low 70s. Temperatures will heat up away from the coast in the coastal valleys where highs could reach the low to mid-70s. The inland valleys will be the warmest with daytime highs mostly in the mid-80s.

One change from the weekend is the morning coastal low clouds and fog that will be throughout the area. Though no advisory is in effect, commuters should expect dense fog on the roads along the coast and within the coastal valleys through the morning. The clouds and fog will burn off for most of the area on Monday, but there’s a possibility it could stick around at the beaches.

Winds will be mild today and within a five to ten mile per hour range with possible 15 mph gusts. By the end of the week, daytime highs will decrease by about five to ten degrees as weak weather moves over the area.
