Forecast

Heat builds for mid August.

EVENING: Mostly Sunny, Comfortable. Hi 81.

TONIGHT: Mostly Clear, Comfy! Lo 61.

TUESDAY: Increasing Clouds. Hi 82.

August is starting off with a refreshing airmass! Low humidity and sunshine provided a pleasant Monday with highs only near 80 degrees!

Much of this week will remain comfortable with highs in the 80s. A nearly stationary coastal front will keep clouds along the coast this week. Although we do not expect any rain from the front, there is some uncertainty to the amount of cloud cover locally this week. After a sunny start Tuesday morning, clouds will start to increase Tuesday afternoon. At this time, we are forecasting for a mix of clouds and sun for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

The upcoming weekend features a return of 90 degree heat. Some storms may develop Saturday afternoon and evening, with a hot and dry day expected Sunday. The 90 degree heat starts Saturday and last through at least next Wednesday.
