    The recent stretch of July-like heat comes to an end tomorrow night following a cold front passage, forecasters say.

    Temperatures today will reach the middle 80s inland, peaking near 90 degrees tomorrow, according to NOAA.

    It will be cooler in coastal areas, where temperatures will max out in the lower to middle 70s today and lower 80s tomorrow.

    Showers and thunderstorms associated with the remnants of Tropical Storm Ana are possible through tonight, and fog is once again expected to develop in coastal areas during the evening hours. 

    Tomorrow night’s cold front passage will usher in drier air and near normal temperatures in the 50s during the overnight hours and around 70 degrees on Wednesday, when a secondary cold front will reinforce the cool shot. A northwest breeze will be flowing through the evening hours.

    Forecasters expect dry and seasonable air to remain until Friday, when a more humid flow from the south develops. 

    By the weekend, temperatures are expected to be slightly above normal, and a shower or thunderstorm is possible Saturday. Partly cloudy skies return on Sunday.
