Looks like the monsoons are over for this year. A few hot days are expected before things cool down next week. 

You said that a week ago as well and look what happened :P

Generally safer to declare monsoons over in October down our way.

When it reaches our area, it tends to “latch onto” the PV headland and roll north from there. Even on days with northwest winds, our marine layer seems to come from the south because of this. It’s something I puzzled over until I actually watched it on satellite.

OC and SD beaches have fared better. The northern Channel Islands often guide the marine layer directly at the South Bay. Depending on inversion depth and the strength of the onshore flow, they may flow in continuously all day. They typically extend a mile or so inland, roughly to Sepulveda Boulevard, thus my term “Sepulveda Wall”. 
 

70 might be our high here.

You’ve beat me pretty regularly this year. I *do* live in one of the coolest coastal microclimates anywhere from LA County down, though. On par with the Santa Monica Pier and only surpassed by Malibu. I think it has to do with being near the middle of the bay, so no matter the wind direction we have almost zero protection.

Next week should be a taste of fall for most places, particularly near the coast.

This week is looking very mild. 💤

May/June like northwest flow is back all the way along the coast. Yaaawn.

Fall sometimes begins with “June Gloom in reverse” lasting a week or two as winds cool the ocean but the deserts are still hot, but this is far from consistent.

KLAX went down to 59F as low this morning.

100F again today, at least right now. Likely to get hotter within the next couple of hours. I can't wait for this heat to go away.
