Weather Summary

Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image
  • 99°

Not as stormy today, and even hotter.  Offshore flow is also not as strong today, but strong enough to pin down the sea breeze front again, so temperatures and heat indices are soaring.  Please be HEAT SMART.

Any isolated late-day thunderstorms will wash out quickly by sunset with a warm night is on tap for tonight.  Better storm chances are back for the weekend.  --  Big John
