STUDIO CITY (CBS) — The on-shore flow continues Friday morning.
Most of the basin and coastal valleys are waking up to low clouds with an inversion running near 2000′ deep. That’s going to help, to give us a mild Friday. However, it does appear the weather pattern is about to change up over the weekend.
As anticipated, the upper level high pressure ridge in the middle of the nation is going to drift back to the west. That will help to warm us up as early as Sunday. Temperatures in the warmest valleys could approach 100 degrees. The other weather feature that will be coming our way: higher humidity and the possibility of a thunderstorm. The monsoonal flow appears to be shifting into our neck of the woods. We had a little taste of it on the 4th of July, but it does appear we have a better shot at it Tuesday and Wednesday of next week. We may see some cumulus cloud development over our mountains sooner than that.
Beaches -upper 60s to low 70s
Basin – mid to upper 70s
Valleys – upper 80s to low 90s
