Inland valley temperatures climb closer to triple digits Thursday

Posted at 7:55 AM, Sep 06, 2018

High pressure is continuing to build over California, which means daytime highs for the inland valleys are starting to heat-up. Thursday will be somewhat of a transitional day as daytime highs will jump by about five degrees and reach the upper 80s to the mid-90s in the interior valleys.

Winds will be moderate, but breezy throughout the afternoon as gusts could reach nearly 20 miles per hour. These conditions will carry over into Friday as temperatures continue to rise. 

The coastal valleys will still be within the low 70s to low 80s on Thursday, however, daytime highs from Friday to Saturday will get close to 90 degrees. Along the coastline, conditions are still fairly consistent and temperatures will be within the upper 60s to mid-70s. Marine layer and fog will blanket the beaches and coastal valleys throughout the morning ahead of late morning clearing. The past couple of days have shown that marine layer along the coast has been stubborn to clear before noon, which could be the case again on Thursday.
