STUDIO CITY (CBSLA.com) — The way we start this work week is going to be completely different from the way we end this work week.
For today and tomorrow we are anticipating a strong on-shore flow and thickened marine layer. Low clouds are in the valley this morning.
There a couple of fronts pushing through the west coast that will keep our temperatures below average. There may be enough of a marine layer to squeeze out a little drizzle in some foothill communities.
However, by Wednesday a ridge of high pressure will expand into the west coast and we are getting geared up for a prolonged heat wave. Inland temperatures could reach well past 100 degrees for 5 days or more. The high desert could surpass 110 degrees.
Right now it looks like the monsoonal moisture will stay away from the area.
Basin – low to mid 70s
Beaches – upper 60s to 70s
Valleys – mid to upper 70s
Mountains – upper 60s
Deserts – low 80s
