Friday & the weekend: Turning hotter

/ June 13, 2024 at 6:05 PM

Temperatures climb fairly sharply before dropping off back toward normal as we get into Friday and the weekend. Friday will start around 70°, warming to the mid-90s in the afternoon under mostly sunny skies as ridging builds aloft. We make a run toward the Lachey mark on Saturday as highs top out near 98° away from the coast. Dewpoints in the low 70s will contribute to heat indices approaching 104° or so during the height of the afternoon, so be sure that you’re getting enough hydration and taking breaks if you’re going to spend time outdoors. Temperatures back off a bit for Sunday as the wind turns more onshore, but will still be plenty of warm with highs around 90°.

We’ll stay rain-free Friday, but the standard afternoon chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms re-enters the weather picture on Saturday into Sunday as another front stalls out nearby. Overall, though, we should see more sunshine than not. Try to stay cool!
