Today was an excellent example of how micro-climates produce radically different conditions. The immediate coastline of Los Angeles was shrouded in low fog all day yet inland a short distance it was sunny and somewhat hot. Maximum temps today: Getty Center [89F\ 31.6C] and Santa Monica Pier [59F\ 15C]; that's a difference of 30 degrees in less than 3 miles! :wacko: Cold water well offshore create these remarkable contrasts between the beaches and just a few miles inland.

92F\ 33.3C at my house 20 miles inland.

More or less a fog bank at my house all day. When heard a report of Sun inland, I was actually a bit sceptical it was so thick at times...

Bill, there is a low spinning off Baja that may move north into California tomorrow; maybe a little thundershower!

Dense fog again this morning including the LA Basin; too shallow to reach foothills\ valleys.
