Expect this weekend to be 8-10 degrees hotter than normal in Venice with the Southland set to experience above-normal temperatures today and over the weekend. Unseasonal Santa Ana winds are the culprit forecasters said.
The heat will result from an upper ridge that will be situated along the coast today over the weekend, and Santa Ana winds that normally blow in the early part of spring said National Weather Service meteorologist, Curt Kaplan.
Kaplan added the region will be spared the morning low clouds and fog normally associated with May gray or June gloom conditions.
Temperatures will be 10-12 degrees above normal in the valleys and 8-10 degrees above normal in the L.A County coastal zone, which includes downtown Los Angeles.
The San Fernando Valley will be L.A. County’s hottest area today and over the weekend.
