Temperatures soared over California for a second straight day on Monday; most of the temperatures that reached record heights were in areas spanning the Great Valley and the Bay area as well as Southern California.

On Tuesday, the outcome will be much the same, at least inland, as temperatures will climb yet again to the 90s over the Great Valley, other inland valleys and the desert southeast of the state. The day's heat will break, or at least rival, daily record highs from Redding and Red Bluff to Fresno and Bakersfield as well as from San Jose to Sacramento.

However, the outcome will be different along the immediate coast, both in Southern California and the Bay Area. Immediate Los Angeles, Orange County and San Diego will all cool noticeably Tuesday owing to a light onshore wind flow.
