LOS ANGELES (AP) - After a blistering end to August, Southern California’s September is off to an unusually cool and cloudy start.

Temperatures are running below normal Thursday, with a deep marine layer and extensive overcast in parts of the region.

The National Weather Service says onshore flow will gradually weaken over the Labor Day weekend as an upper-level low moves east, and temperatures will slowly warm to near or slightly above normal next week.

Forecasters also say coastal mariners should be prepared for swells generated by storm-force winds in the South Pacific, and south- and southwest-facing beaches will likely have elevated surf and high risk of dangerous rip currents over the holiday weekend.

The weather service, meanwhile, notes that Santa Barbara and Santa Maria airports had the warmest August on record.
