and we will see the mid-level clouds dissipate. here is a look at a potential for rainfall. not very much out there, but if you notice into the eastern sierra, that is what we are looking at in terms of perhaps some wet weather. otherwise on tuesday we are back to the 70's and 80's. here comes a bit of a warm up into wednesday. into the upper 90's in the inland valleys. we stay comfortable along the shoreline. elsewhere today, looking at low 60's. slightly humid, a chance of a late a thunderstorm for the overnight hours the rest of the middle of the week looking and very little change, 60's, 70's and 80's. it is the end of the week we bring in some warning.
