We even had a record broken in Melbourne where the high temperatures reached 86 degrees.
Highs will stay above average the next few days, but start to drop back as a front sliding in brings clouds and a higher chance for rain.
Partly cloudy skies are in the forecast through the overnight hours. A few showers may be possible as we head toward daybreak, along with some patchy areas of fog. Temperatures will fall into the mid to upper 60s.

High pressure to our east has us in a southerly flow, warming our temperatures well above average and making it feel muggy. An approaching cold front Wednesday will provide the necessary lift and instability to create a 40-percent coverage of showers and a rumble or two of thunder. Overall, anticipate a mix of clouds and sun with highs in the mid to upper 70s.
The front stalls nearby Thursday allowing rain coverage to remain at 40-percent. Highs stay in the mid to upper 70s. The front lifts north as a warm front Friday, but with plenty of moisture in place, rain coverage stays 40 to 50 percent.
Highs approach 80 Friday and Saturday, then the cold front slides back south dragging drier air in for Sunday. Temps stay above average behind the front through the middle of next week before a strong cold front sweeps in and knocks them back well below average.
Beach and Surf Conditions
Grad a board and be ready for fair surfing conditions Wednesday morning. Wave heights of waist to chest high may be decent enough to catch, but afternoon conditions lean poor to fair with an easterly swell.
A moderate rip current threat sticks around for the rest of this week. Sea surface temps are in the upper 60s to around 70 degrees.
