Temporary Toasty Weather Warms SoCal, Santa Ana Winds Blowing in

SoCal residents get a respite from rain, but it's not to last.



    The sun is shining in Venice Beach on March 10, 2013 as Los Angeles residents say goodbye to cold temperatures and gear up for warm weather.

    No need for umbrellas for the next week -- the wet weather is gone, and sunshine is rolling in starting Sunday.

    Enjoy it while it lasts as temperatures will be in the mid-70s for about 10 days, but after that the rain returns in time for the first day of spring.

    Inland areas in LA will get up 80 degrees. Evening lows in Los Angeles are going to be in the 50s .

    There won’t be a cloud in the sky at LA and Ventura County beaches, and surfers will see waves around three to six feet.

    Orange County beaches will be breezy as the Santa Ana winds pass by Santa Clarita and San Bernardino to sweep around to OC coastal areas. Swells in Orange County will range from two to four feet.

    A wind advisory is in place until 3 p.m. in the Los Angeles and Santa Monica mountain areas.
    Northeastern gusts will get up to 30 miles per hour in the San Fernando Valley, but they will peter out by the late afternoon.

    Hollywood and Malibu will be breezy as well, with wind speeds getting up to 25 miles per hour.

    In Mammoth Mountain, the sun will be shining for boarders and skiers who can skid around on eight feet of snow at the base, and 16 feet on top of the slope.

    March may be the last time snow enthusiasts will be able to hit the slopes before the springtime sun turns it all to slush, according to NBC4’s weathercaster Carl Bell.
