Temperatures are starting to creep back up before a major mid-week warm up begins.

On Sunday, temperatures were near normal, with gusty winds keeping temperatures on the cooler side.

That trend will continue on Monday, with temperatures 2-7 degrees below normal, and wind gusts potentially getting strong enough to prompt a small craft advisory.


Monday morning we can anticipate some low clouds and fog before they retreat in the afternoon and come back in the evening.

This pattern will continue until the cloud coverage starts to diminish around Thursday.

Our mid-week warm up will dramatically increase some of our valley temperatures, with much of the Central Coast seeing temperatures 4-12 degrees above normal.

It's likely a heat advisory will be issued, as places like Paso Robles could get to 104 degrees Wednesday.

Some parts of California are already scalding hot, with heat advisories issued for Riverside, San Diego, Clark, Inyo, Mohave, and San Bernandino counties.


The National Weather Service estimates temperatures in Death Valley will range from 113-121 degrees!

By the end of the week, we are expecting temperatures to cool back down again, making next weekend look very similar to what we had this weekend.

Enjoy the cooler weather while it lasts!
