STUDIO CITY (CBSLA.com) — The upper level low that was responsible for the rainy weather yesterday is now on the move over Southern California.
The system picked up a little speed overnight with most of our rain coming between 10 p.m. and 4 a.m. The rain chances taper off through the first part of the day.
As the low moves inland we have our best chance for a t-storm this morning. We should pick up another .25″ of rain from this system which is quite impressive for this time of year. However even with this added hit of rain, this year will end up being one of the driest on record.
High pressure will build in behind this system. We start a gradual warm up for Wednesday and Thursday before things kick into high gear. It looks like an off-shore flow will push the thermometer up. We are looking at some upper 70s to middle 80s by Saturday. On Sunday (Mother’s Day) we could even see some upper 80s with very dry conditions.
Basin – mid to upper 60s
Beaches – mid to upper 60s
Valleys – upper 60s
Mountains – mid 50s
Deserts – upper 60s
