Sunshine will gently warm Los Angeles and San Francisco through Phoenix and Tucson again on Monday.

Dry northerly wind flow prompted by offshore high pressure will turn the trick, as it will preclude any meaningful cloudiness.

Temperatures will, with few exceptions, top out from about 70 F to the mid-70s, although low deserts in California will have readings above 80 F.

Tuesday will feature at least one more day of widespread bright sunshine. The sunny days will last into the late week in the southern deserts.
