It will be a warm end to the week, but temperatures will gradually begin to cool west of the mountains, while the deserts remain hot through the weekend.

Marine layer clouds will hug the coast, keeping temperatures very comfortable there, and only slightly above average. We'll once again be flirting with record high temperatures across the deserts. 

At this point, I think we are all ready to ditch the heat, and the good news is that a cooldown is in sight!
