Temperatures gradually increasing for inland valleys      

Posted at 5:31 AM, Aug 15, 2018

Wednesday will be somewhat of a transitional day for the interior valleys as temperatures continue to climb closer to triple digits. Daytime highs will range from the low-to-upper 90s but things will change on Thursday as daytime highs get closer to the low 100s. Triple-digit temperatures will make way back into the forecast on Friday and stay there through the weekend before backing off at the start of next week.

Low clouds and fog will continue to impact the coastal valleys in the morning ahead of late morning clearing. Daytime highs will mostly be in the mid-to-upper 70s but could reach the low 80s on Wednesday. Much cooler conditions will be at the coast with temperatures from the low 60s to low 70s, plus the addition of marine layer. That marine layer will be stubborn to clear at the beaches throughout most of the morning, but the sunshine is expected to break through for at least the latter half of the afternoon. As a result of the foggy conditions, there’s a chance of drizzle in the morning and overnight hours.

Winds look to be fairly mild on Wednesday and will stay around a 10-15 mile per hour range
