Early morning offshore winds and a lot of sunshine will combine to bring our area a scorching day on Friday. Temperatures on average will be anywhere between 10 to 20 degrees above normal as the hottest day of the week is expected tomorrow. With the heat and dry weather comes the elevated concern for fire danger, so please be extra vigilant when out and about in the dry brush.
This weekend our temperatures will drop a few degrees each day, and while the cool down will be nice, temps will still remain above average. Daytime highs this weekend will warm into the 90s in the valleys, and the 80s and 90s by the coast. With respect to those rain chances in our extended forecast, we've pushed that back by a few days. Now it appears that the timing of our next storm has moved to Wednesday and Thursday of next week. It doesn't look like much if anything at this point, but we'll continue to monitor these changes closely.
