As we enter late July and early August, the west coast will be smudged in between a battle of troughs moving through the west coast and the large ridge in the middle of the country. The marine layer will make appearances as the troughs deepen and warmup will ensue when the ridge dominates. Temperatures will range from below to near normal. At the present moment, the marine layer is firmly entrenched at the coast.

Another feature to watch will be the remnants of Hurricane Dora as it moves NW.

It's currently 63F here in Santa Monica and the marine layer has hung on for a solid 19 hours so far! Feels much more like a fall or early spring day

Glad to hear about increasing marine layer....should make for great time-lapse material for me. And cooler evenings happy.gif

Low 90s are the warmest we've gotten all year - very unusual for this area. We've usually breached the 100F marks at least several times by now.

Indeed, in fact, it's drizzling right now in my area!! ohmy.gif Talk about unexpected. What are your average low temperatures down in temecula for this time of year?

I'm in Palm Desert for the week and today it was 113 here today, but now it's in the 90s with a nice breeze blowing through Banning Pass. It wasn't like this last night, so must be some sort of onshore push.

Amazingly, the resort I'm staying at is full, despite the extreme heat, and it's a pretty large place - the villas at the JW Marriott in Palm Desert.

Looks like we unknowingly switched places, I just left yesterday to Newport Beach and will be staying there until Sunday. Lovely weather this morning, mid 60s and clouds! biggrin.gif

Just about the same here in Santa Monica. That's actually not too bad, I thought it would be slightly higher since you're further inland.

Anyhow, 16 hours straight of IFR conditions here (clouds bases <1000 feet) and just finally cleared out. Still quite cool and the marine influence is quite evident with the temperature only around 70F right now.

Something I've noticed this year that's way different to years before; the daily breeze feel cool now. Everyday we have wind up here in the desert and it usually makes it feel like a desert. The breezes this year aren't warm at all, just cool or neutral.

Edit: Anyone noticing the expected path of Dora? Possibly some incomming moisture late next week?

Hard to believe, but its lightly raining/drizzling here now. You can actually smell rain/the moisture in the air. Makes for a very nice night as its a cool 71F indoors right now smile.gif

Looks interesting! Hopefully we can get some good moisture out of it, and get some rain. (and not plain hot and muggy weather ohmy.gif )

No rain here but it is nice and foggy out. I'll enjoy this kind of weather when I get it wink.gif

71F is a quite chilly for the middle of the summer. I'd need to have long pants, a sweatshirt, and slippers. Don't like that as I'm a shorts, T-shirts, and sandals guy. Hoping to get some nice beach weather during August and September, but we seem to be getting less and less of that each summer.

71F is basically room temperature... I fail to see how that is chilly. I wear shorts and t-shirts in 40F weather.

I actually had to take out a warmer blanket as well. September will have to have at least a few days of heat in my opinion as that is our hottest month.

For summer in California it would be considered chilly (especially when considering it cooled down to that temp by itself - w/o an ac). Normally at this time of year the room temperature in my house is more around 78F - 81F and even though it doesnt seem like much of a difference, it really is

Varies dramatically. In the winter it's usually in the 60s (sometimes 50s during strong storms), but it can also be in the 80s or 90s if we have offshore flow. It's actually not that hot here this summer (downtown's been average low 80s or so and the coast has seen nearly no days above 80 degrees)
