Slight Chance of Rain Before a Warm Weekend at the Beach

5:11am

A weak storm will push into the Southland today dropping temperatures and carrying a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms before giving way to warmer weather by the weekend.

According to the National Weather Service, the gusty winds that battered parts of the Southland Monday and lingered in mountain areas this morning have largely died down. An upper-level low-pressure system will move into the area Wednesday, but it will have “limited moisture” and only a slight chance of rain, bringing primarily partly cloudy skies for most of the area.

Mountain and inland areas have the best chance to see some moisture Wednesday night into Thursday, including a chance of thunderstorms that could drift into the valleys, according to the NWS.

“Brief heavy rain and small hail will again be possible, but very
isolated,” according to the NWS. “Many areas will likely see nothing or just sprinkles from decaying storms off the (mountains). A pretty strong onshore push (is) expected again Wednesday afternoon and there could be some wind gusts into the low 30s for coastal areas, and possibly some advisory-level west-to-northwest winds in the mountains and Antelope Valley late Wednesday afternoon into Thursday morning.”

Temperatures will dip as the system moves through, with downtown Los Angeles and Long Beach expected to top out at 71 on Wednesday, while it’ll reach 67 at Los Angeles International Airport, the mid- to upper-60s across much of Orange County and the low- to mid-70s in the valleys.

The temperature will be a few degrees cooler across the board on
Thursday, then rebound by Friday and continue to increase through the weekend, according to the Weather Service.
