It’s a hot one out west. Fortunately, San Diego is right up on the coast where perhaps it will be a little bit cooler.
At 826PM, PT, San Diego was reporting a temperature of 66 degrees with mostly cloudy skies. A cool wind off the south Pacific was bringing in a shallow marine layer that was als being seen as far north as Carlsbad. It was in stark contrast to areas inland, which were still as warm as 110 degrees near the Salton Sea.
High pressure in the southern Rockies is the one of the typical features that contribute to suffocating southwestern heat waves, and there is a really good ridge out there right now. Ridging jet flow and a broad, stalled trough in the eastern US, as well as Tropical Storm Cindy will slow down any breakdown of the ridge for the foreseeable future.

So not too bad on the coast, mostly because of the marine layer, which you can see on the satellite below.
