Night and morning low clouds and fog will affect mainly the coast and some of the valleys closer to the coast, Saturday night through next Saturday.
Some beaches will remain mostly cloudy due to strong onshore pressure gradients.
An upper level ridge lowers the marine inversion, helping keep this marine layer around.
Gusty onshore afternoon and early winds will affect mountain areas Sunday, with some wind gusts affecting people out on the water.
Temperatures will be near normal along the coast and near normal to several degrees above normal inland.
In areas like Kern and Tulare Counties, things are really heating up, prompting an Excessive Heat Watch.
We won't be getting nearly as hot, but some areas will be near 100 degrees Sunday.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
