As high pressure strengthens over the state, the breezy conditions will continue and the temperatures will continue to increase.

Offshore flow will continue Friday, but the main talker will be the temperatures. Daytime highs for the beaches and inland valleys will be right around the low 70s. For the coastal valleys, daytime highs will be slightly warmer and closer to the mid-70s. Skies will continue to be partly cloudy from the morning and through the afternoon.

Northerly winds will still be on the breezy side, with peak winds ranging from 15-25 miles per hour through Friday afternoon.

A high surf advisory has once again been extended through Friday at noon. Throughout the morning, surf will range from eight to eleven feet before decreasing Friday afternoon.

The biggest change in the forecast will be Sunday when a cold upper low takes over on Sunday, developing over the state. Offshore flow will switch to onshore flow and temperatures will decrease as cloudy conditions increase. Temperatures are expected to cool across the area by at least 10 degrees.
