STUDIO CITY (CBS) — We are still under the influence of high pressure Friday, so look for similar inland temperatures into the 90s. Some coastal low clouds will clear out later, but keep us mild at the beach and in the basin.

A broad trough is strengthening and will slide into the west coast over the weekend. This will increase the on-shore flow and consequently the low cloud cover. Temperatures should pull back a bit into the weekend. The trough remains in place through Tuesday and Wednesday of next week (4th of July). Although we should see some slight warming for the 4th we will keep temps slightly below average leading up to the holiday. After Wednesday it looks like a more pronounced ridge of high pressure moves in and that will warm us up.

Our water year ends Saturday. Here are the grand totals:

8.69″ for the year
14.93″ normal
6.24″ defecit
20.20″ last year
4.93″ since January…which is 5.68″ off of the normal for that time period.

Beaches -low to mid 70s
Basin – low 80s
Valleys – low 90s
Deserts – low 90s
Mountains -mid 70s
