STUDIO CITY (CBSLA.com) — Once again, you can expect lovely weather across the Southland Tuesday. However, we are going to start transitioning away from this weather pattern by this evening.
You may start to see a couple of high clouds today — those cirrus clouds are ice crystals blowing out ahead of a cloud shield that is over the Pacific right now.
As we progress into Wednesday, a front will push into the Pacific Northwest and break down the ridge of high pressure that has been keeping us so comfortable over the past several days. So look for cooling tomorrow.
By Friday, the 80s will be a distant memory and we will return to normal temperature levels in the upper 60s. A cut-off low that is developing off-shore will eventually open up and move inland on Friday. This will be our first chance for showers into the weekend.
Another couple waves of energy over the weekend and at the beginning of next week could spell a wet pattern, however, the models are in somewhat of a disagreement about how much moisture we are going to get. One is pretty dry, while a couple of others bring in more of a rainy pattern. We will have to wait and see.
You can guarantee cooler weather in the extended period.
Basin-upper 70s to near 80
