California's spell of winter warmth is coming to an end after more record highs.
The National Weather Service says high pressure that pushed Southern California temperatures into the upper 70s and low 80s on Wednesday will diminish along with the accompanying gusty winds, and there will be low clouds and fog during the weekend.
There's also cooling in the forecast to the north, where several high temperature records were broken or tied in the San Francisco Bay and Monterey Bay areas on Wednesday.
In the great Central Valley, meanwhile, extensive areas of dense Tule fog remain a problem Thursday.
Long-range forecasts suggest the interruption in unusually warm temperatures may be temporary as high pressure is expected to begin building again on Monday.
