The upper-level low responsible for the hot and muggy conditions will finally track inland Thursday, which will sweep the monsoonal moisture east of California and will usher in strong to gale-force, 25 to 31 mph northwesterly onshore winds along the coastline.

That will also bring back night and morning marine low clouds with fog and mist, seasonal temperatures and mostly clear late-morning and afternoon skies through the weekend.

Warmer weather but without significant heat should return by the middle to end of next week, with temperatures expected to be seasonable.

Your Weekly PG&E Safety Tip

Buckling up is such a simple thing to do; it only takes two seconds, and no other single action has as much lifesaving potential.

If more adults wore safety belts, their kids would, too. Besides, it’s the law.
