    Riverside County will likely be a bit warmer with temperatures in the upper 80s and mid 90s.

    Riverside County residents can expect similar temperatures, while the Orange County coast will cool down in the mid 70s. The San Gabriel Valley is expected to have temperatures in the upper 70s and lower 80s.

    High pressure will continue to flow in from the south and is expected to anchor to the east. Some clouds will roll in from the east, but warm temperatures will stick around.
