Temperatures will slightly warm up Friday and onshore flow will continue, but weaken day by day.

Pretty foggy start in the morning not just for the coastal areas but interiors as well and that looks to continue tomorrow, however, the shrinking marine layer combined with increasing thickness will bring a warming trend to most areas Friday.

Friday seems to have a one-off warming trend before cooling off slightly this weekend.

Daytime highs look to reach low to mid-90's for the inland valleys, upper 70's to low 80's for coastal valleys and upper 60's at the beaches.

Looking ahead to the weekend, onshore flow will decrease and temperatures will begin to gradually increase through Tuesday, resulting in daytime highs close to average July temperatures.

As for winds, the continued onshore flow will generate gusty afternoon winds for interior sections Friday and Saturday.

High pressure looks to build gradually mid-next week bringing temperatures slightly above the seasonal norm.
