Foggy morning for coastal valleys and beaches

Posted at 5:24 AM, Aug 14, 2018

The marine layer along the coast is continuing to expand and blanket most of the coastal valleys and beaches, which is a trend that will continue on Tuesday and through the rest of the week. Temperatures will be consistent through mid-week before a slight warm-up that will bring inland valley temperatures back up to triple digits.

Tuesday, daytime highs for the interior portions will range from the upper 80s to mid-90s with mostly clear skies. Winds look to be fairly calm throughout most of the morning, but there’s a chance for wind gusts to increase in the late afternoon and get up to 25 miles per hour.

The coastal valleys will continue to stick around the 70s and 80s on Tuesday with mostly sunny skies. Fog will be a factor throughout most of the morning before it clears up before noon. There isn’t a dense fog advisory issued, but be aware of the foggy conditions before heading out the door Tuesday morning. There will be similar conditions at the beaches throughout the rest of the week. The marine layer along the coast will produce some morning and evening drizzle and keep temperatures from the low 60s to low 70s.

High pressure will start to expand for the southerly portion of the western region on Thursday. As a result, daytime highs will increase and reach triple digits for the inland valleys by the weekend.
