Santa Clarita Valley residents who suffered through triple digit temperatures last week may be relieved that this week will be much cooler, with temperatures expected to remain in the 80s through Thursday and a chance of drizzle tonight.

Temperatures are forecast to remain relatively low this week as a low-pressure system moves in and remnants of Fabio, a small hurricane below Baja California, begin to move in, said Stuart Seto, weather specialist for the National Weather Service.

“Tuesday might be the coolest day of the week,” Seto said.

There’s a chance of drizzle after 11 p.m. today through 11 a.m. Tuesday, with clouds and patchy fog expected in the morning, according to the National Weather Service. Temperatures are forecast to be in the low 80s Tuesday and Wednesday before warming to the low 90s Thursday.

Along with the warmer temperatures Thursday and Friday come a 10 percent chance of showers for the mountains and deserts, Seto said.

Temperatures Friday through Sunday are expected to reach the mid- to high 90s, and Sunday is expected to have monsoonal weather with higher humidity.

Residents who leave the SCV for the beach this week can expect strong currents and possible rip currents with two to four feet surf. Waves could reach as high as five feet on south-facing beaches.

“The surf will probably be up,” Seto said.
