approaches the West Coast...pushing the upper ridge eastward.
Increasing onshore flow will bring gusty onshore winds each
afternoon and evening into midweek. Daytime highs are expected to
drop about 3-5 degrees Monday compared to Sunday`s highs...and will
be around 100 degrees. A cooling trend will become more pronounced
on Tuesday. Minimum humidities will remain low Monday afternoon
