Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton‘s Daily Forecast Discussion:  

Clear skies for the rest of the night and even though we were a bit warmer today, we’ll cool nicely back into the low 50s. Some light low clouds overnight along the coast, otherwise we’ll see sunny skies from start to finish for the next couple of days.

We’re seeing high pressure back this week and we’re off to the races for highs back in the upper 70s and plenty of sunshine for the start of next week. Summer heat (so to speak) is back for much of the first of July, high pressure aloft and a drying offshore wind are expected Monday through Wednesday. Temperatures will soar into the mid 80s Monday, and likely approaching 90 by Tuesday, some spots may see the hottest day of the year so far. Meanwhile, still comfy at the coast with highs in the upper 60s and low 70s and sunny. Winds switch by midweek, bringing in the cooler ocean air and slashing highs back into the mid 80s to upper 70s.

Early indications are a dry forecast for the Fourth of July but cooler with highs back in the mid 70s. We’ll keep a watch on a low pressure center developing next weekend. The last few computer model runs have been pushing it further north which would mean a dry weekend for us!

Have a great weekend!
