STUDIO CITY (CBS) — Get ready for a warm start to the work week!
The marine layer has been squashed to the coast, only running between 700′ and 1000′ deep. A ridge of high pressure centered over the desert southwest has shifted west, and that is going to warm things here in the Southland.
The Antelope Valley soared past 100 Sunday and it will again Monday. The lower valleys are also going to be warm near 100 degrees as well.
The peak of this heat should be Tuesday, but Wednesday will be warm as well. There is the indication of some cooling for the end of the week, however on Thursday look for increasing mid level moisture and some lift in the atmosphere. This is an indication of monsoon activity, which will translate into t-storms for the area. Nevertheless, look for higher humidity.
The red flag warning for LA Co. did cancel…it will still be warm and dry today, but the wind component is gone.
Beaches -low to mid 70s
Basin – low to mid 80s
Valleys – around 100
Deserts – low 100s
Mountains -mid 80s
