Temperatures are starting to rise following a winter chill that brought cold weather and strong winds to the Southland, with the weekend forecast expected to be back in the upper 60s.
The hiatus from cool weather will be short lived, as showers are expected Monday and Tuesday.
On Thursday morning, it was 31 degrees in Calabasas, 42 in Inglewood, 50 in San Pedro and a chilly 26 in Palmdale.
“The onshore flow is going to keep some of the sun out today and with cloud coverage to act as a blanket, it won’t be as chilly tomorrow,” said NBC4 meteorologist Byron Miranda.
With Thursday afternoon temperatures expected to warm up to the mid-to-high 60s in most areas and the mountains in the mid 40s, Angelenos should begin preparing for possible rain on Monday.
Overnight temperatures expected to be in low 40s, with north winds around 15 mph after midnight, blowing into Friday and making some areas a little breezy.
“Temperatures are still chilly in areas and they’re going to warm up a bit. It’s not as cold as yesterday,” said NBC4 meteorologist Byron Miranda.
Friday's high will be 68 and Saturday's will be 67. Sunday will be cooler, followed by a 60 percent chance of showers on Monday and a 50 percent chance of showers Tuesday.
