On Sunday we saw temperatures 5-12 degrees above "normal" with many valley areas experiencing temperatures over 100 degrees.

Temperatures are dropping a few degrees from Sunday's scorcher of an afternoon and our heat advisory will be expiring at 8 p.m.

A persistent upper level high pressure system is going to keep these warm around for a few more days before we start to feel a cool down by Wednesday.

A southern flow is bringing increasing monsoonal moisture and a slight chance of thunderstorms in mountain areas.

A small craft advisory is continuing through Wednesday, creating short, choppy seas in our outer waters.

Our waters could get more dangerous later in the week as Tropical Storm Juliette gets closer.

Currently, the storm is over one thousand miles from Los Angeles, but it could create elevated surf heights starting Wednesday night, bringing waves up to 4-6ft.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
