The large high pressure area is continuing to bake the western U.S. Today will about like yesterday...maybe a couple of degrees cooler. Winds will be south to southwest in the afternoon.
A very slow cooling trend will begin Tuesday. Toward the end of the week the high will have shifted eastward as a low pressure trough pushes into Canada (see map below). The inland areas of Northern California will cool to near normal by Friday and hold there through the weekend. Afternoon southwest winds will continue.
