- Mainly clear skies and warm temperatures will continue through Saturday thanks to continued high pressure to our east. Temps will be slightly cooler today with the marine influence back in play.
- Overnight and morning stratus and fog will continue to move in, that has actually made it's way north from California over the past couple of days
- Sunday is our transition day: a low pressure system is approaching and while Sunday will start off fair, the air mass over the south coast will become increasingly unstable as the day progresses for the risk of afternoon thunderstorms, evening showers and cooler overnight temps
- Our Summer week will be but a distant memory starting Monday - wetter and cooler weather here to stay for most of next week
