STUDIO CITY ( — For the first morning in quite sometime…there are no advisories of any kind.

The winds of diminished and the temperatures, while cold, are staying above an advisory level. So this is what you would call a spectacular Southern California day.

We have high pressure building in from the Pacific and that is going to keep our temperatures above average. Expect daytime highs in the upper 70s through the weekend. That will put us in the ball park of 10 degrees above average.

That ridge will break down by the middle of next week as a disturbance passes through the west coast. By the end of next week…the high pressure fills in again and we will have an off-shore flow.

While it will be absolutely lovely, I will emphasize what I have written about before. We are starting to have a concerning rainfall deficit. Right now we are almost 3″ below average for this time of year. And our long range forecast is showing now measurable rain through possibly the end of the month.

Nevertheless enjoy the nice weather this weekend.

Coast-mid 70s
Basin-upper 70s
Valleys-low 80s
Mountains-mid 50s
Deserts-mid 60s
