With temperatures near normal, sunshine will be bursting through the morning clouds.

In typical Southern California fashion, each morning will start off with some low clouds for the coastal areas. However, as the middle of the day approaches, sunshine will be breaking through the clouds and persisting into the evening.

Per the norm for this time in August, high temperatures will be in the lower to middle 80s each afternoon.

At night, lows will drop down into the lower 60s through the week.

Rain is not expected to return to the forecast until closer to September. The lack of rain will only add to the drought problems for the state. According to the California Drought Monitor, nearly 60 percent of the state is classified in exceptional drought, the highest drought category.
