LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Offshore winds are expected to push temperatures into the 80s by Sunday all across Southern California.
Sunday’s highs could set some records or come pretty close, National Weather Service forecaster Jamie Meier said.
The Dec. 12, record high for Downtown was set back in 1895 at 86 degrees and NWS forecasters are predicting a high of 82 degrees, according to Meier.
After a dose of dense morning fog, visibility could be down to a quarter-mile in pockets along the coast. Saturday’s highs will be mostly in the 70s.
Temperatures are expected to be fairly even across the Los Angeles Basin with more highs in the 80s to be forecast for Monday. A cooling trend should start Tuesday.
In the mountains and valleys of Los Angeles and Ventura counties, a wind advisory will be in effect until 3 p.m. Saturday.
Gusts up to 55 mph or more are possible in some passes in the San Gabriel Mountains.
