Longer Range
Last week's data

Forecast: Well if you're like me and have gotten tired of the hot days we've had this summer you are in luck this next week. Temperatures are finally cooling down to around the averages this weekend, and the trend will likely continue into next week. We have a couple of weak weather fronts that are going to move through, mainly Sunday evening and again on Tuesday. We may see a couple showers out of these systems as they move through. Highs are going to be around the upper 60's and low 70's for the next several days. More consistent sunshine should return around Wednesday and last through next weekend. Our friend the onshore flow will be providing air conditioning so you can expect morning clouds and afternoon sun with highs averaging around the mid-70's Wednesday and beyond. 

Longer range forecasts out there are finally pointing toward a trend of more near normal temperatures for the area. I'm expecting a more normal weather pattern for the start to our fall as the El Niño in the Pacific has faded into a La Nada. I believe we are done with our near 90°F high temperature days.

Last week's data:
High temperature: 89.4°F (Tuesday)
Low temperature: 55.0°F (Saturday)
No measurable rainfall
Warmest day: 70.6°F (Tuesday)
Coldest day: 62.6°F (Friday)
Average temperature: 66.6°F
Historic average for last week: 62.5°F

I've added some graphs below to show daily dew point average and daily high and low temperatures. The faint lines in the daily High/Low are the station's historic average for August by day. With the exception of a handful of days we were above the average the entire month. July looks about the same as well. I'll have more on this as summer wraps up.
