STUDIO CITY (CBSLA.com) — Monday ended up being a lovely Southern California Spring Day, even with the cooler temperatures.
We can expect more of the same today. However, there may be a bit more cooling and some beach communities will have a tough time clearing out of the clouds.
There is a trough encouraging a strong on-shore flow and that’s giving us a decent cloud deck. The low clouds have once again made it into the valleys.
Expect winds to kick in through the day today. A wind advisory will be in effect through the Antelope Valley.
By tomorrow everything changes and we will be dealing with the opposite condition: clear skies, warm temperatures, and very dry conditions. The beaches will still be dealing with some patchy fog, but that will clear by Thursday.
The National Weather Service has issued a Fire Weather Watch that starts late Tuesday and runs through late Thursday. It may even get extended into Friday.The watch could easily transition into a red flag warning if the humidities drop to critical levels (single digits).
Temperatures are going to be way above average and into record territory. Then we can expect a little cooling Sunday and into next week.
Basin – low to mid 70s
Beaches – upper 60s
Valleys – upper 80s to low 90s
Mountains – mid 70s
Deserts – low 90s
