Josh Rubenstein’s Weather Forecast (April 18)
STUDIO CITY (CBSLA.com) — The big story over the next few days will be the dry warm weather that is descending upon Southern California.
Before we tap into that warm air, there is still a little lingering cold air in the high desert making for a cold morning. Once the sun comes up and we get that solar heating, those cold temps will be a distant memory.
We are looking at a decent off-shore flow which will bring us widespread temperatures in the 80s.
We are expecting the high pressure to stick around through at least Saturday, then we will see that ridge push back to the west. Cooler weather is on tap for Sunday.
The next few days will also spell high fire danger. The gusty winds combined with very low humidities will make for dangerous conditions. We’ve already got widespread wind advisories this morning, and a Red Flag Warning that will last through the end of the week.
Basin – low 80s
Beaches – low 80s
Valleys – mid 80s
Mountains – low 50s
Deserts – low 70s
