The large and oppressive area of high pressure, which is responsible for our latest heat wave, is weakening and moving more to our east! this will bring some welcome relief and even some coastal fog. We then see a quiet pattern of mostly seasonal conditions for much of next week.
For tonight, look for mostly clear skies...fog is expected to try and develop right along the coast through the night. With this type of cooling trend, it is likely that we will see patchy dense fog for some areas. The marine layer is very weak and low to the ground and that's why dense fog is possible...overnight lows will be in the 50's & low 60's.
For Sunday, welcome relief will be felt region wide! Inland areas could see about a ten degree drop in temperatures from what was felt on Saturday! That means it will still be very warm, but much better with highs in the 80's and 90's. Coastal areas should see at least a few more degrees of cooling with highs expected in the 70's!
Looking ahead, more fog and a return of seasonal temperatures is expected by early next week. The pattern only shows some minor changes for much of the foreseeable future. The only possible twist could be in the form of some extra humidity and clouds late next week. As high pressure spins to our southeast, the Monsoon Flow shows signs of pushing clouds up in to at least the deserts of Southern California...something to keep an eye on!
