STUDIO CITY (CBSLA.com) — We are starting the work week off on a cool, cloudy, and in some cases, drizzly note.
A broad trough is moving through the west coast. There is a wave of energy rotating through the trough and it will bring us a chance for a shower later tonight.
The trough is also responsible for some dangerous winds that will increase through the day today. We already have wind warnings in effect for mountains and deserts through early tomorrow morning.
As the low transitions south and east, we will see the winds continue with cold air driving into the Southland. That cold air will also lower the snow level even though there is little in the way of moisture. That means wind advisories and warnings with temperatures only topping out in the 60s for the first few days of this work week.
However, by Thursday a ridge of high pressure will build in…and we are back into the sunshine…with warm temperatures. We should get some 80s on the board by Thursday.
Basin – mid 60s
Beaches – low 60s
Valleys – mid 60s
Mountains – mid 50s
Deserts – mid 60s
