Josh Rubenstein’s Weather Forecast (Aug. 30)

STUDIO CITY ( — Look for another morning with overnight lows above average.

The big bubble of high pressure that has been scorching the Southland for the past several days is starting to drift back to the east. That’s going to help us cool off a little bit on Thursday and a little more Friday.

The on-shore flow will strengthen. The combination of tropical moisture surging from the south and some instability will still give us a chance at an afternoon thunderstorm. That chance continues tomorrow as well. By the weekend, we bottom out with our temperatures and on Sunday we rebound back with warm weather again. It won’t be quite as hot as this week, but valley temps should rise towards the Century mark.

Isaac continues to swirl in the Gulf Coast…and remains a tropical storm at this hour…wind speeds at 45 mph. Here on the Pacific side…tropical storm Ileana is kicking up the surf for the Southland. There is a coastal flood advisory starting Friday.

Coast-upper 70s
Basin-upper 80s
Valleys-near 100
Deserts-low 100s
Mountains-mid to upper 70s
