STUDIO CITY (CBSLA.com) — After a very warm Wednesday, things are cooling down.
Yesterday, the city of San Gabriel reached 97 degrees, which was the hottest temperature in the country. It will still remain well above average today, but cooler than yesterday.
The high pressure responsible for the warm up is drifting back to the west. Now a trough is setting up in the Southwest. As it carves south, cooler weather will settle in along with a thickened marine layer.
Several waves of energy will rotate through the bottom of the trough, which will also increase the wind potential.
It is for this reason a wind advisory has been issued for the high desert and mountain communities. It will run through Sunday morning.
The weekend stays cool, then next week we will see some warmer weather.
Basin – low 80s
Beaches – upper 70s
Valleys – upper 80s
Mountains – low 60s
Deserts – mid 70s
